That will not happen.

My understanding was that experimental status being applied retroactively was a very exceptional thing, and applied only to two features that had caused problems since the day they were included in a stable release.

The whole point of establishing our current way of introducing non-trivial (and even some trivial) features was to avoid that kind of mess in the future.
