Thus my conclusion that there seems to be a deeper disagreement on the
nature of incubating releases.

Upayavira made a good point about the difference between endorsing a
release and endorsing a project. The way I see it, the ASF endorses a
release when the binding release vote passes. A project is endorsed
when it graduates from the Incubator.

Do people think that we shouldn't make such a distinction, or that we
should perhaps explicitly consider "community quality" as a release
