As has been said in this thread already, so long as all IP concerns have
been addressed and thus the podling is able to make releases, it is up
to the PMC to decide whether to use an incubator artifact. If the
podling should fail, the PMC then has the responsibility for supporting
that artifact to its consumers. If the PMC is okay with that, then go
ahead, use it like any normal resource.
