I do not understand this.  Why do we need to actively prevent users from 
using undocumented features?

In order to be able to release often, implementors of larger features 
need to be prepared for a release from trunk before their feature is 
completed.  One way to do this would be to provide an property for 
turning the functionality off.  What is a large feature in this context? 
I would say anything that takes more than 6 months to develop.
