I know that there Computer Vision themed site in incubator, but it is still far enough from beta. So, is it appropriate to ask CV related questions here (since SP and CV peoples often intersect and thematic has a lot in common)?
In particular, I'm interested to ask "structure from motion"-like question.

I'd say go for it, we need more questions. Everybody may not agree, but as long as it's about the theory/practice of transforming/analyzing analog/digital signals (of any dimensionality), I'd say it's fair game. Even if a question could be asked somewhere else, the discussion from a signal processing perspective could provide insights that might not come up in other contexts.

There's even a discussion of whether to merge the CV proposal with SP on Area51:



I think the proposal I committed to was called "signal, image and video processing", based on an announcement on the OpenCV user list.

So, yes image processing and computer vision are on-topic according to me.
