It's already happening to some degree or another ;) Jose's antlib stuff is in 
the proposal hierarhy. Magesh is playing with selector stuff there aswell, 
Stephane is doing remote junit stuff and so forth and if thats not enough 
there is also ant-contrib on sourceforge that apparently has a bunch of 
experimental C/C++ tasks. 

Many of these mods can not be dropped into an experimental.jar because they 
require changes to the core but some can easily enough. So it is up to the 
people writing the mods whether they want to build the items into something 
that could be put int an experimental.jar. 

However personally I think it may be better to release the tasks/pieces 
independent of ants main release cycle (which is slow) because that way you 
get faster evolution. The onus is on thwose building the proposal/experiment 
to do the releasing which is the way it should be IMHO
