IMO, no.

Agreed, though I have some of my own ideas.

Do projects have to graduate? I don't want this to be viewed as a
competition between initiatives, and promotion/relegaion/graduation
seem to set a competitive tone. As soon as you start talking about
graduation or promotion, you start getting into resource allocation
issues, etc.

I'd personally be fine if a project joined the incubator and stayed
there. If they wanted to somehow because an Objective, we already
have paths for that.
