Chris is jumping towards the end result. Don't get upset by that. The
simpler answer: *try* his new approach on a singular podling basis.
That can run in parallel to the Incubator.

The Board can easily absorb one "special incubation" project. There is
an entirely separate discussion of what that really means, how much
Board-offloading is performed, what kinds of mentoring/input is
provided, etc. But the short answer is that we can run trials
*without* dismantling the Incubator.

Consider it.
