I'd like us to all step back and take a look at the bigger picture.

Apparently, the root of this is a statement that something about the 
incubation process of Lenya raised hackles.  I suggest that there may be 
multiple root causes for this.

Putting incubator as a part of the name is a form of disclaimer.  One 
that is relatively expensive.  I, too, would rather we explore cheaper 
alternatives before we decided to require this for every project.

It seems to me a disclaimer on the website, perhaps also in the root 
directory of the associated CVS trees, and a process which prevents any 
official "release" to be created by projects in incubation should be 
more than sufficient.
