To be clear: we have allowed (and IMO should continue) podlings to have
licensing issues during their incubator releases. For example, while
they're still dealing with Hibernate dependencies. It is understandable and
(IMO) acceptable that such releases will have problems. That is just part
of the process. As long as it gets cleaned up before graduation.

Not diminishing the need for a good scrub, but I would not want to see
releases gated on that. (it's unclear from your text; maybe just a *plan*
rather than completion of the scrub?)
