It's absolutely about your incubation request.  Part of this process is
looking at the technical fit with the rest of OpenStack, and this is
well within the scope of that discussion.

I need to make another pass over the added info and go deeper into the
technical bits, so I suspect there will be more feedback still.  It's
only been a day.  :-)

Also, note that most of the things brought up so far are based on the
proposed requirements for becoming incubated, not for things to be
worked on during incubation.  Unless the requirements change, so far it
looks like this request should be deferred a bit longer.
