This is a sensible course of action, get the first release out soon (so 
you get the procedures in place and everything setup), then concentrate on 
shiny new features :)

I'd suggest a quick check on general@incubator to see what most others 
have done. I know of some who've made the switch ASAP, others who waited 
for the next major release (they did a minor release after starting 
incubation to get the processes right and the IP stuff sorted, but without 
changing APIs). Probably best see what the majority do.

(My hunch is that the best bet is to do a minor release without the 
change, to minimise the work on the first release, then shortly after do a 
major release with the change, but it's worth checking what others 
have found to work well)

FWIW, Tika is still on 1.5, so if ODFToolkit required 1.6 then we couldn't 
use it

That said, if the odf community is keen, then ignore Tika and upgrade! 
Probably best to roll that into the release which changes the packaging
