I've mentioned this before under "structure, not content."  If another PMC 
likes the content, then the Incubator PMC can *not* block it because it 
disagrees with the project - but it should ensure that the proposal is 
complete.  Like with the Solr proposal, it'd be ensuring that there are 
mentors listed and that the initial committers list is accurate.  Or with 
Tuscany, defining the scope appropriately.  -- justin
