But being careful not to throw the baby out with the bath water.  I 
would have said there is real value in the Incubator defining and 
fleshing out a process that is used by the various PMCs for incubation. 
  It might even oversite the process at a high level to ensure 
consistency accross all incoming projects.

I think there might also need to be someone to look after projects that 
are going to come in at the top level - i.e. not under the auspices of 
another Apache project.  A lot of the current Incubator documentation 
focuses on that case.

(Harping on a subject) - a charter/mission statement would be good :>. 
The stuff on wiki is a first stab at roles and responsibilities - can we 
start with that and flesh out?
