i believe you are mistaken.  that model only permits new adoptions
into existing projects -- which is most definitely not the sole
scenario.  iirc, that is *one* scenario -- but the incubator has
the task of fielding requests from external projects that want to
become part of apache.

so a project can enter either because it was sponsored by an
existing asf project that commits to provide a home for it on
emergence, or by applying out of the blue.  in the former case,
the incubator probably doesn't get to vote on acceptance, only
on emergence.  in the latter case, however, the incubator *does*
get to decide.  part of the decision is to make existing projects
aware of the application in case any of them want to become a
sponsor.  if none do, then the incubator gets to decide whether
the project would be an asset to the asf, and, if so, the exit
path will be to a new top-level project.
