I believe that this was addressed in

I've removed this from the working copy.  There was no expectation of
it remaining:

There are two aspects to the experiment: "does it even work" has been
a concern raised (that is, across a range of deployments), and "will
anyone bother" is the obvious other.

Maybe add to the introduction:

"This experiment aims to gain deployment experience with this mechanism."

I'm not sure how useful that is given that many (if not all)
experimental RFCs have the same goal.
