I agree. If you have a "We're not committed to this and don't stand behind it yet" status, things stay in that status a long time and then there's no distinction between function in that status and not.
I think it should be like the 5-second rule for reclaiming food dropped on the floor. You have one release to change your mind and redo a user interface before it becomes set in stone.
The effectiveness of that would depend entirely upon how well the rule can be communicated to users.
