I noticed in the new version that Drafts now takes a reader to the Wiki, 
and there is a "Final Drafts" subsection of the main incubation pages.

Is this giving the Wiki pages a more official status than previously?  I 
kind of like the idea of a Drafts section, where documents close to 
completion go, with maybe a cover page that discusses the reason for the 
drafts section and points to the Wiki with a clear statement that this 
is where absolute first cuts get created.

I also noted when I looked that the status section talks about a 
Sponsor.  Should we talk about both the Sponsor and the Sponsoring 
Entity (to keep the terminology in line with documentation)?

Having said that, I like the layout (but then I already know Forrest, so 
I like it from that perspective too :>).
