Hm... I like the goal, but I don't see particular harm being done if a mentor 
sponsors a mentee, as long as the goal is actually still met.

Hence I'd rather make a rule like this:
"The mentor should try to integrate the mentee within the MOTU community and 
familiarize him/her with the MOTU workflows and procedures. As an example, 
the mentor should teach the mentee the regular sponsoring workflow by 
exercise. (more examples)".

Of course this rule is pretty obvious, and is what mentors are doing nowadays 
anyway, right?
