The page is obsolete and does not reflect reality, the distinction is 
really not there.

I'm finishing the new website now, please wait a few more days.

In the meantime look here for more fresh info:

These docs are more near to the real incubation process:

It just means that the Cocoon PMC is the Sponsoring Entity and final
