So you have a ratification process, where the next (or next+1) release either ratifies the API and it becomes 'stable', alters it (and it remains 'experimental'), or removes it. This stops anything sitting in the experimental state for too long, as developers have to make the improvements or formalise it to keep it in the kernel.
