Aye, and this is also the reason why it potentially conflicts with  
the meritocratic model of the ASF; furthermore there are also legal  
hurdles to cross etc.

In the end I think it's simply too early to discuss all this - let's  
wait until some project comes up with a well-prepared and clearly  
defined proposal to change their SCM. IMHO this is certainly not a  
task for the Incubator or a podling...
