I think it makes most sense for graduated projects; a podling project
is not guaranteed to graduate from the Incubator and might choose to
say move to a GitHub-only model.  This could then require a project
rename beyond removing "Apache", as ASF would have the trademark
registration and there might not be a new legal entity to move the
trademark to.

But that said, I don't think there's anything stopping such a
registration for podlings - not sure if policy-wise that would need to
include "(incubating)", which perhaps would look odd in a trademark.
