We really don't have a policy on something like this.. to my knowledge.
But we could make one.

We could create a libkdeuiexperimental, or some-such. ie.
prominently display "experimental" in the library name and in the header install dir.

phonon does something like this, there is a libphononexperimental
and include/phonon/experimental.
