The amounts of "must" and "can't" on the page make it seem very non-voluntary. 
And like Kevin and Kevin, I have thought that this was *not* voluntary.

Same time, the states can be described as "provides absolutely minimal 
information needed to be a project", "communicates well with one person, the 
sponsor", "participates in the KDE community", "dead". Those are not a lot of 
bureaucracy (well, there is mention of a "committee", which I don't see 
defined anywhere).

The role of the sponsor described in the process is quite an active one: 
there's a number of steps to be taken, and communication to be handled. 
Probably not more than a few hours across several weeks, but it needs watching
