That's true.

One possibility might be to have same kind of notes as there are after
configure for example when you configure PHP to use the bundled MySQL
libs. Like this:

|                        *** WARNING ***                             |
|                                                                    |
| The extension FOOBAR is considered EXPERIMENTAL. Please check the  |
| ext/foobar/EXPERIMENTAL file for more information.                 |

This could be easily be automated by just having the EXPERIMENTAL file
in such extension dirs.
