With the introduction of programs (think: official teams), all
incubated/integrated projects must belong to an official program... So
when a project applies for incubation but is not part of an official
program yet, it de-facto also applies to be considered a program.

I'm not 100% sure we'll keep that "election" requirement. I think the
program application should have an initial PTL named on it. The way
that's determined is up to the team (natural candidate, election...).

No, since the team produces code the ATC designation method is pretty
well established. This rule cares for programs which have weirder
