Fair enough. No point debating it -- but suffice to say that other perspectives might misinterpret it.  The real crux of the matter is the issue of support and ongoing development -- that's the kicker for people investing their time, development, and product in FFmpeg or any part of it as a direction (especially commercially). All ambiguity can be eliminated by just saying outright -- "This codec is not to be used for production, as it will not continue to be developed or supported." But if those specifics should be inferred from "experimental", then understood. 

Thanks for the clarification.
