Do you need the branch the whole directory?

We usually (read: always) don't use branches for development, i.e., we 
don't use branches that are planned to eventually merge in.  That's because 
CVS's branch handling leaves a lot to be desired...  It may be ok in this 
case, where the chances of somebody else committing something that would 
clash with your changes are very slim, but I think you're better off 
branching just the file or couple of files which you're modifying.

EXPERIMENTAL is way too general to be good for such a purpose...  I'd try 
and use a fairly descriptive name, which is unlikely to be used again in 
the future.
