I understand that there are some specific circumstances in this case,
but in general I believe this sort of criteria is why we get
complaints that it's impossible to "innovate" at Apache any more.  We
require all the grunt work of innovation to occur outside of Apache.

The issues of an open specification is one thing.  But aren't "proven
an actual community" and "work the standard 'apache way'" graduation
requirements, not entry requirements?  If we expect something coming
into the incubator to already have a fully functioning, health
Apache-style community, then the only point of the Incubator is for
handling licensing issues.
