"one of the best ways to find shortcomings in an API is to attempt to document it comprehensively"
True. However it's not nearly as good when the person involved in writing the code implementing the API also writes the documentation -- that does not strain underlying assumptions in the way that thorough review and proper documentation processes tend to.
So perhaps once the API is in glibc and documented by another party it could be considered "stable".
