IANAL but one comment on SparQLed - you should probably state what the 
license situation for any generated query in the same way that parser 
generators or compilers do. They usually say "the output is not 
licensed".  I think that unless you do this, the output of the editor is 
under the license of editor itself, which is currently AGPL3.

Other than that, I agree with Simone.  If there is connection to Any23, 
then the project can accept a software grant; if there isn't a separate 
incubator proposal is cleaner.

You've said you are going to license under the Apache license - you 
don't need to submit to Apache to do that.  You can use the license now 
- the details are given in the appendix to the ASL 2.0 license.
