---- Any evidence of non-commercial sites being sandboxed?

Of course, a new site would experience problems. It would have zero links. My point is content is no longer king. If anything links are now more important then ever. When I say links I mean links from non-affiliated sites.
Google counts links and transfers PR from 301 redirects. It would have the same links as before. A page that previously ranked number one would not rank in the top 300. Same links, same content, same PR, new domain, no rankings. That is the sandbox.
Marcia, The site I have in question is a local information site which only included Adsense until very recently. The keyphrases for which the site ranked well while on its previous domain were both commercial and non commercial, although the locality is decidedly commercial (travel destination).
