While technically accurate, the way you are both using the term conveys a
false meaning that would be in conflict with the clear statement in the
Incubator Disclaimer:

  "While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the
   completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that
   the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF."

And every time you want to gray that area, you provide more weight for
making the division between the Incubator and the rest of the ASF more
starkly delineated, which would result in measures more onerous than most
under discussion.  So let's try and keep that line nice and clear, rather
than blur it.
