Hmmm.  I can think of at least one occasion when that would've
saved me sinking into limbo from which it gets ever harder to
extricate oneself.  I express interest in a podling, get signed
up as mentor without really meaning to.  Then my personal
circumstances get difficult, and all Apache activities get shelved
while I'm caring for a serious invalid.  She dies, but it's
a year on and I can't re-engage with the podling.  Or indeed,
for quite some time, the Incubator.

A well-defined withdraw-by-default process would've been a
blessing.  And I expect many disengaged mentors could tell
similar stories.
