I think the most valuable Marketing pipeline OSGeo currently offers is 
the OSGeo-Live DVD, which includes an "OSGeo" icon, an "OSGeo - Project 
in Incubation" icon, or no icon depending on the level of incubation for 
each project.

This only partially addresses your marketing concerns, but I don't think 
we should be changing things.
