I would agree with that provided that we require other voters to
document what they have actually reviewed in the release, something
like:

-PPMC members review their release and create a text file in the
incubator's svn repository, based on a template that indicates what
needs to be reviewed in a release

-At least one Incubator PMC member reviews the release, updates the
file accordingly, and their +1 vote along with the usual PPMC vote
validates the release

-For the first release we require at least three IPMC members to
participate, instead of just one.

This would provide good oversight, while helping educate the PPMC
members and keep a good record of the release requirements that other
podlings can use as examples. And make sure people's +1s are based on
something tangible and documented.
