Having a no vote in what enters the incubator, but only on what leaves:
1) sets up the folks doing the work for burnout due to the possibly 
large numbers of projects in at any one time. Controlling throughput is 
2) sets up a larger number of projects for failure. If there is 
(hypothetically) some compelling reason that a project isn't going to be 
graduated, then isn't it better to be able to say that at the start, 
rather than waiting for a certain number of hoops to be jumped through?

Yes, absolutely, I believe the incubator should have a vote up front to 
approve what enters the incubator.
