No, but it is the role of the Incubator to ensure that
new projects are in the best interest of the foundation,
and not simply be a rubber stamp. The Incubator, for
example, I think has the responsibility to be able
to say "You know, this is a great proposal, but there
are too many podlings right now, and we cannot accept
it" and have that honored.

For things as important as new projects within the
ASF, having the Incubator vote on acceptance is, I
think, a small consideration.
