The only problem at the moment seems that the svn/git mirroring is slow.

I don't know if it's applicable for asf or even if they already considered 
it but in the last company I've been working for, they used subgit [1] to 
mirror the svn repositories and after a one-time setup which cloned our svn 
repo, the mirroring was almost instaneous (both sides), the benefit is 
keeping svn as main repository while having the ability to work with git

I count 46 projects on GIT (see https://git-wip-us.apache.org/repos/asf) so
it's hard for me continue to think it's "experimental" today.

As you say, maybe this will end not happen, but it could be the opposite,
and walk backwards like crabs: Staying in GIT could bring less
contributions than expected or make potential contributors not encourage to
expend the time since they are not confortable with the overall process.
