Going to such lengths for 'widespread, unintentional adoption' seems a
bit paranoid to me. Has there ever been a situation that necessitated
this policy or that caused it to come to fruition? What exactly is
being protected if the Incubator is all about projects learning The
Apache Way?

What I really don't understand is why having 'incubating' as part of
the version and a package name of org.apache.incubator.<project> is
not enough. Because the policy of a completely separate repository
causes difficulty for users.
