That is very much my plan, and I still think it will be possible to
accomplish it.

However, right now, it is experimental. So, I think the proper course
of action would be to mark it as experimental right now. Then, as soon
as we 'un-experimental' it (no matter whether within or after 4.7),
we'll amend Kconfig as well.
