I agree and would prefer this as well. The important point for me is 
that the project is "incubating" but not the product. And I agree to rob 
that it should be sufficient to mentioned this in the text on the 
project sites.

Well we can use logos with the "Incubating" string on the websites but 
we should not use it in the product if possible.
