I am against watering down the role of the mentors.  What this proposal is basically results
in is doing away multiple mentors for a podling and whittling it down to one mentor whose
name is now champion.  Clearly not the way to go.

Let's ask ourselves, if each podling had two active mentors, what problems would be left for
the Incubator?  Not a whole heck of a lot.
