Oversite implies some level of involvement - if there is oversite, then 
it is part of the process, and therefore anyone doing oversite is 
implementing their part of the process.

I don't see how you can be responsible and not also be involved at some 
level.  That's having your cake and eating it too.

I'm starting to lean strongly towards a model of the Incubation project 
providing the standards and procedures that assist those responsible for 
the incubation of a particular project (the shepherd/mentor and the 
"owning" PMC) in the discharge of their duties.
