This ticket has had no attention whatsoever.  This means that either (a) the feature is bug-free and perfect, or that (b) nobody is using it, or that (c) those who are using it are very silent.

If a is the case, then this feature no longer needs to be experimental.

If b is the case, it should definitely remain experimental.

If c is the case, would somebody please speak up and give opinions on the feature (whether it works and is designed well, whether it is designed poorly, whether it seems like a good design but has bugs, etc.).
