I can only underline this. It would be quite necessary to know how many
pages existed there and how active the project actually was (There is no
reason for the language committee to make an exception for all these
languages IN BULK if some have actually no current interest from users).
The XML dumps can of course be imported to Incubator in the case that an
own subdomain is not immediately created.
Note that some pages for a wikivoyage in Spanish have already been started
on Incubator, as well as this request/discussion:

Besides, can these old wikis from which the xml files were taken still be
accessed? At least it is not http://pt.wikivoyage-old.org/ .
