you need a project before you can create directories in the normal cvs.
and most of the things in sandboxes will never have projects created  
for them.

and there's a lot of useful stuff in sandboxes, for the right people.
Sandboxes are a way for developers to share code, and not meant for  
end users.

Additionally, working on large core patches in sandboxes are not  
really ideal either.
I've found it best to have an actual complete drupal core checked into
a revisioning system, with multiple people having write access to it,  
to work on big core

Something which the sandboxes are not well suited to, and separate  
repositories are better for.
