Maybe we could split it a little bit. Similar to the kernel there is a
staging area. Ok there are some features, which are not yet promoted
to mainline, some never will.
But some things like examples/ could be moved out to another directory.
(How about Documentation/historicEncounters/ ?)
Also we could think about renaming contrib to staging then.
However I don't think it's urgent.
