I'm not sure I would go so far as requiring a full release.   I think the rule 
would be:

"Podlings should produce a release candidate while in incubation that 
satisfies all the generic ASF release policy guidelines and criteria (in 
particular legal ones) as well as all the incubator-specific rules.  The 
candidate should be presented to the incubator PMC for verification and 
approval, but the podling will not be required to release such candidate."

Basically, get things "ready" while in the incubator and show the process is 
understood, but allow it to be fully released after graduation when 
the "incubator" branding can be removed if the PPMC of the podling thinks 
that's best for their project.

That's my non-binding opinion.   :-)
