There is always a continual tension between releasing things that
really aren't ready for wide distribution yet, and and keeping new
functionality isolated.  This is true of any software artifact, not
just FreeBSD.

The fact is that some people will assume that if something is in the
main tree, that it has achieved some degree of stability.  Is it fair
of them to do so?  You decide.
