How about having a generic demo component

Hi Tony,

The infusion repo includes a directory of examples. These were, and I
believe in some cases are, intended to be used with the infusion
documentation. Hopefully it’s the type of thing you were hoping for as the
sandbox content.

Hi, Michelle:

There are no formal plans that I'm aware of.  There is some work that would
need to be done to make this possible, mainly adding the ability to load an
initial "starting point" per topic.  Once that is done, someone would need
to actually create the "starting point" for each topic.    Given that many
of our tutorials and documentation already contain examples, there might be
room to reuse some of those (and to add tests for our example code, which
would be a big improvement).

I'll bring up the topic in tonight's architecture team meeting as well, but
if anyone has time and interest in working on, please reach out.  If there
are at least a few people who are willing to contribute sandbox content,
I'm happy to kick things off by pushing the work I did on the sandbox into
a shared repository, and working the "starting point" loading code.
