Daniel, Frank,
I suspect that the grouping of the MetaCRS projects together would be 
making it hard to complete incubation, because you would be needing to 
check back on all projects to confirm completion of each incubation step?

Maybe a way forward would be to push each project through incubation 
separately? I suspect that proj4j should be able to fly through the 
criteria very quickly by itself?
