I don't think so. Moving that code away from the focal point where people are
expected to find new code to test and work with won't help.

You could decide instead to implement drivers for a small set of very popular
acquisition cards; whether that implementation is eventually fully validated or
not depends on other people to have enough interest in that work to give you
access to some hw, or to validate the driver themselves. As Jan pointed out,
"experimental" is a convenient sticker to tell people about the exact state of
this work.

You spark the effort (this is _always_ the hardest and most demanding part of
the job), they help finalize it if they want to get serious about this.
