That seems to be more-or-less the real way to handle this: put it in a
block, but have the block not included in the build by default.  That
way, someone new to Cocoon isn't going to stumble across it by
"accident".  More-over if they've got to go into the
file (don't see the need for an extra prosperities file?) to add the
block back into Cocoon it is easy to have a big comment very visible
that says experimental.  IOW, by forcing the user to modify the
properties file you make it obvious the block is experimental...
