Ok, I am not a native speaker but
...what if incubating mentors would abuse...
is a subjunctive! I did *not* say that they did or do!

Lets just asume that is just blue-skying!!!

It *could* but it *should* not happen - ever.

It already could have happend but this is not the subject of the thread:
How to *prevent* abusing Apache priviliges (better: ~ in the future)

If this had happend before and I would know about that I still would not

The aim of this thread is to set up rules to prevent such things from 
happening in the future.

I do not thing that we could correct such abuse happend in the past. The 
damage would have already been done and could be only be fixed by the 
abusing mentor.
