I think that's pitching it a bit strongly, depending on
what you mean by 'prime time.'  When I meant to convey
was that while something is in the sandbox, its presence
there can give the impression that it's just a toy or
thought-experiment for a small (possibly single) number
of people, or perhaps a proof-of-concept.  When it's gotten
past that point and become something that multiple people
want to have persist, then a home for it should be found
outside the sandbox.

It sounds like the EE 5 stuff falls into that category now:
something that isn't just a toy, and that people expect
will have a future.  Where it should go outside the sandbox
is the next question, and one I'm too ignorant of the
technology to have an opinion about. :-)
