That was my intention. The sandbox is a place where new things can be 
developed... for example annotators, tools... and so on....
Maybe some of these project get also integrated to the core framework. 
But I'm not sure if, e.g. annotator components will be added to the
core. I think such analysis components will ever stay in the sandbox and 
can be downloaded there. Other opinions?

And I agree with Thilo, that we should add some of the sandbox 
components to the next release. So we can provide
binary versions of components that are ready to use.
