I disagree.  One problem is that the terms seem to be getting overloaded.
But whomever is the Sponsor that brings the project to the Incubator, ought
to be willing to take on the responsibilities.  The Incubator isn't a
daycare center to drop off your kid.  And the Incubator PMC is there to
help, to guide, and to assist, but also to make sure that the project
doesn't leave the Incubator until it is ready to be a project of the Apache

A warning sign to the PMC ought to be lack of support from the Sponsor.  If
necessary, a "foster Sponsor" could be located, if there is one willing.
