I don't think we need to push back.  We just need to describe the 
technical qualifications of the code separately from the organizational 
qualifications of the code.  The version numbers and other documentation 
can reflect the richness and stability of the code.  The "incubated" 
prefix/suffix/whatever can indicate that the project code is not yet 
fully endorsed by the ASF.  I also think a blurb in the README file
and on the Web site can elaborate on this distinction.
