Although I agree that there should be a written guidance, I think we shouldn't cover experimental 'features' in this topic; this is specifically about API/ABI, not about the behavioral changes.

> In all of these cases I believe the code was included when we had reasonable expectation that no significant changes are to be done in the standards.

At this point we will not have such expectation any time soon, and that is the time period I'd rather like to support. Of course, it is an option that we start the development work / public testing only after the standards are fixed, it would miss the opportunity to actively collaborate with the standard body or the application development.
