Yes, in an ideal world the API would be fixed, but it seems this is not a big enough itch
for anybody, plus the fact that other things need fixing for it to happen.

It makes very little sense to mark it stable without it actually being what is generally considered
(by this community) as stable.

You might as well just throw away all semantics, I doubt there are many people here who want
to release something whose API they know will change, and then have to support it. 
With all due respect, you've been around here long enough to know that you have to scratch
your own itches or wait for somebody else to.
