There's no guarantee that any particular project will even
exit incubation. So I don't agree that a bit of code entering 
incubation is a defacto endorsement by Apache.

I thought the whole purpose of the Incubator was to allow
potential code time to breathe and its respective community
to get some legs behind it. I think submissions should be
voted up or down to enter incubation based on whether we 
think the technology is a fit for Apache. And, personally,
I think AJAX is the perfect fit.

Let the project succeed or fail on its merits, not because
we're waiting for the perfect implementation to fall into
our laps.

That's my two yen.

Bringing something to the ASF immediately raises its profile in the world, 
and many people look at that as a badge of merit, and will assume that 
this must be the right way to do things.
