I don't know. I think the community did a pretty good job of that with 
Woody. It was quite clear that it was experimental yet folks tried it 
and I don't recall anybody complaining when it was all renamed to become 
the forms block.  Maybe because Woody is still around. 

I suppose one way would be to initially name stuff as 
o.a.c.whatever.experimental.ClassName.  Then when you have it working 
create a clone at o.a.c.whatever.ClassName and deprecate the 
experimental stuff. An even better name would be 
o.a.c.whatever.testme.ClassName ;-)
