I was thinking something similar.   If we can leave "incubating" out
of the logo, and just give the required language, in text, in the
dialog, then we do not need to change the logo when we graduate.  I
don't think it makes sense to mix the "status" of the project with the
"brand" of the project.  The status of a podling is meant to let users
and visitors to our website know that the project may not have all the
qualities of a TLP at Apache, in terms of maturity.  But that is not
our brand.
