Unless you specify which project you aim to graduate, I can only
assume it is the incubator itself, which is already top level.

There is officially released and officially released. Any podling that
issues a release has officially released the code. The caveat is that
the community surrounding the code may or may not be viable yet while
inside the incubator. Incubation might still falter.

However even top level Apache projects don't have eternal life (see
http://attic.apache.org). If you choose to adopt *any* open source
code, be aware that you may end up having to support it yourself, or
pay someone to do so.
