I argued myself into adding this one.  While I don't disagree with your
perspective, every time a podling graduates it comes up from board
members.  The IPMC did not prepare the maturity model, yet somehow it
applies to podlings planning to graduate.

I'll point out that the page itself states this is only a guide, not a
policy.  So I don't think we've changed Incubator policy by adding a link.
I could see it being stated as more of "compare the podlings actions and
behaviors against the maturity model.  I could also see it moving into the
"Other Issues" section of the guide instead of the checklist section.

Thoughts?
