I think it's a mistake to confuse "experimental" as a synonym for "doesn't work properly yet".
I agree. I use it as a synonym for "is subject to change without warning." However unlikely, I don't want an unexpected change in an experimental feature to break production code. I like to think of that as being prudent though some might describe it as being paranoid. In any case, my operational experience has taught me that "experimental" and "production" don't mix.
