I don't see how being an ASF committer would make you special as an
initial committer of an incubating project? IMHO we should allow
everyone who is actively involved with the codebase to follow the code
as a committer within the incubating project.

We could (or should) better define what that "actively involved" means
(based on ASF-like merit rules) and police that definition so people
won't use the incubator proposals as shortcuts for committership.
Making existing ASF committership a part of that entry criteria (even
as a special bonus) sounds wrong to me.
