Leaving aside the naming issues, the proposal is well crafted and you already
have three experienced Mentors on board; I don't have any substantive

The one thing that jumps out is the homogenaity of the initial committer
list, which will be an important challenge during incubation.  With all five
of the initial committers in the same office, it will be vital to emphasize
communicating on the dev list so that potential contributors never feel as
though they've been left out of the loop.  (I'm reminded of Aurora, which
entered incubation with 7 Twitter employees as the initial committers[1].)
