There most certainly is risk here.

People want to get to work on their project, and they need to know
the name is set in stone. We can't have people making logos and webpages
and o.a.geronimo.foo classes when at the end of it all when it comes
time to exit the incubator, they have to change everything they've
been working on.

Maybe you'd rather just use the PPMC as an avenue to ignore the
votes of the Incubator PMC and those members who have said they
want the name to change?
