The "Maturity Model" (MM) is just a thing developed by ComDev peeps. It has
no bearing within the Foundation, other than as a lens for individuals to
view projects. That lens is not part of the Incubator, or any other PMC.

Personally, I do not view the "podling name search" (PNS) as a gate. That
is another imposition, from outside the Incubator, that has crept into the
"Must Be Performed(tm)" guidelines for graduation. The Board is the
ultimate arbiter of whether a podling can graduate, and a name search is
informative for them, rather than gating for us [on the IPMC]. If a podling
wants to be called "Apache Acme", and "gee, there are a lot of Acme
products out there", then that is on the community. Not something for the
Incubator to demand they change; just something for them to deal with. A
community problem, rather than one for the Incubator or the Foundation

In summary: reduce the rules. Forget the MM and the PNS. Not Incubator
