Nutshell: the purpose of the Incubator is to help bring projects into the
ASF, while ensuring that the proper procedures are followed with respect to
the code, and that the projects have healthy communities.

Honestly, I think that you are spending more time worrying about Incubation
than it would take to *do* it.  From what I can see, and I am doing this
from memory without looking at the STATUS file:

 - Sponsor:    Ceki Gülcü (Logging PMC Chair)
 - PMC:        Logging
 - Committers: at least 4, according to the SourceForge page
 - License:    Apache Software License

So this seems really silly.  You should have no problem filling out a copy
of the STATUS file to record: that you have gotten CLAs for all of the
Committers, that they already use the ASL, that there are a sufficient
number of them to have a minimally healthy community, that the project is
going to be managed under the Logging PMC, that there aren't any improper
license dependencies; and then you ought to be in good shape.

Can you explain to me what you see as a problem?
