I think "incubating committers" are (or can be) different: someone
might think that an incubating project sounds cool, and ask to join
the list of initial committers, but then not find time to contribute.
Or someone might be put on the list of committers as their company is
incubating a project, but not "get" the way our projects work.

I think it is fair to give such people a way out, if possible without
having to use "kick them out" votes. Self-nomination, under the eyes
of the mentors and of a community that is ready to graduate, is
probably the best way, and it's easy to implement.
