Thank you Josh. Much appreciated. Since Google scholar gives 16,800 results for the search incubation insight cognit, it seems fair to say that incubation's a largish concept. Insight, creativity, and incubation are concepts that have been subject to serious (empirical) research published in respected journals, and are of great interest to many cognitive scientists, as they're central to thinking. I still think that we should start using those tags, as they might help searchers, but it's no biggie so I won't push further.

Someone with sufficient privileges should add the tags 'insight,' 'incubation,' and 'creativity.'

Note: stackexchange prevented me from hyperlinking to more research. Vote this answer up so that I can do things like that!
