a protocol is experimental when someone is trying to convince us to try 
it and giving us the code to do so on common platform(s).  (before then, 
it's just hot air)

a protocol is production when customers want it and are willing to pay
for at least the costs of deploying it.

btw, what's "the IETF?" [0]
