Is this 'responsibility means empowerment'?

If so, how come Tapestry appears to be lost?

A rule might be that it is up to the individual PMCs to decide whether 
they are able & willing to handle a donation on their own, or prefer it 
to be 'handled' by the Incubator. In the case of Tapestry, I can only 
hope the Jakarta PMC would decide they are able to be self-supporting in 
setting up Tapestry as a subproject.
