If this project is successful, it is likely to reside entirely
outside of Emacs core. Just like the lsp-mode project lives outside,
and only filed a couple of bug reports when the built-in JSON
support (which they really have to use) showed insufficient
performance characteristics.

FWIW, I don't think it's reasonable to have such core functionality
outside of core.  Such external projects can never last as long as
Emacs did and will, because there's not enough resources to sustain
them.  Bringing them into core is the only way to both make them clean
enough and tested enough, and make sure they stay alive for many
years, let alone make sure applications are built based on them.

I'd also rather it benefits all our users, and the development can take advantage of our experience.

But this is the scenario I've seen many times. And yes, with several innovative projects abandoned after a few years.

Collaborating with the core developers seems objectively more difficult for many such projects, however.
