Yet, Apache does have mandatory reporting for podlings and TLPs. It's
not like this is particularly onerous. (Note, I read the proposal as an
exit interview for the project/podling, not each and every individual
committer/PPMC member.)

But if the "mandatory" thing is too much for people, I think "strongly
encouraged" exit interviews are a good idea. 

I am curious how the reports would be scrubbed, though - given that the
timing of an exit interview would strongly indicate which project had
graduated, and there's usually a fairly small number of mentors and
project participants to provide feedback.
