Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.
Incrementalism and a slippery slope argument are not the same thing. Yelling "slippery slope argument!!!!" is indeed what a dishonest incrementalist would do to try and defend themselves in the interim, but I don't think that kind of intentional deception is at hand here.

There is also no attack on honesty taking place. You're reading that in if you see it. Simply asking for reflection and clarity.
