Most projects that come to incubate would likely prefer to go straight
to the TLP naming.

The last time i recall this came up was here:

IMHO we should insist on using the incubator naming for the Chukwa
website/svn/MLs because I think Chukwa should just go directly to a
TLP and if they have to use the incubator naming it may help them
decide that the direct to TLP route really is better ;-)
