Hmmm, I don't like the idea that sponsors can simply walk away in 
incubation. It makes it easy to push for an idea and let others do the 
hard work.

If someone doesn't want to do the work, then in my book he's not a 
sponsor, as a sponsor gives something to get something, and in this case 
he's just advocating.
