I agree with Sam. It makes no sense that a new TLP is created for a 
project that may even fail incubation.

BTW, we also have AltRMI and FTPServer in Incubation and yet no exit

It is not, in fact.

The rule is simple: a PMC has to vote that it wants that project.

The PMC can be the Incubator itself, or another PMC. In the latter case, 
the Incubator PMC does not need to vote, and operates to help the other 
PMC in incubation.

In this case, the vote is needed by the Incubator PMC as this project 
aims to a new PMC.
