Considering some experimental stuff is sometimes stable on some 
plateform and still experimental because unstable on others, it could be 
better to keep them in, just for users who want to try and help. If 
these modules are deleted, some people will refuse to upgrade because 
they will not find features they need (ex cache or ldap)...

+1 to keep experimental stuff.
