Agree with like 99% of it. I think, however, that the input of the PMC
that the podling will be graduating to is also important... Are they,
in fact, ready to accept them at that time?

So I see it as:

     1. podlings decide they are ready to graduate.
     2. Incubator PMC votes on that.
     3. If successful, Incubator informs PMC (or board, if TLP)
        that podling is ready to graduate and awaits formal
        acceptance of such from that PMC (or board).

#3 is an important check-off point, I think. The Incubator
basically gives away the bride :)
