In response to the general question, it seems that "professional
student" podlings are inconsistent with the idea that the Incubator is a
process that should result in graduation or termination.

Speaking for myself, no. I'd be uncomfortable having a specific deadline
for graduation, but a podling that's not making progress towards
graduation (in general, not pointing a finger specifically at Wave here)
should be terminated.
