I thought that I had later clarified that, but let's give it another go.
First off, see the very first sentence.  Second, the last sentence is the
goal: users should have to make an explicit decision to make use of
Incubator projects.  As many users as want to make that decision are welcome
to do so, but yes, we do not want widespread, unintentional, adoption by
users who may be stuck (and unhappy) if the project dies.  They should be
aware of the risks and accept them.  Do you have an issue with that?
