In other ASF projects I've seen, the convention is to use -alpha1 or
-beta2 etc. to designate such stages.

Release Candidate (RC) has a specific meaning in the ASF, as it is
what is voted on before release.

So one would vote on

1.0.0-beta3-incubating-RCn

and a successful vote would result in the release of

1.0.0-beta3-incubating

A failed vote for RCn would normally result in trying again with RCn+1
to address the cause of the failure.
