I don't think so. Not clear situations are failures themselves.

We need to give someone, and this someone is a *single* entity, the 
burden of declaring succes or failure. Since the final responsibility is 
on the Incubator PMC...

I have done cross-votes for accepting projects and it has been quite a 
mess. So now we just accept any project that is voted in by a PMC.

The same thing is about incubation.

If a PMC does not want a project it can technically still vote and ask 
the incubator to not have it, there is no rule that can prevent that.

But it would be a case of a very dysfunctional Incubator and thus should 
not have to be part of the standard process.

I think it will/*should* never occur, as the two PMCs should be kept in 
contact by the shepherd, and basically have a converging view over what 
is happening.
