Problem: It doesn't follow the naming conventions of an aaa module.

I don't remember if it's been renamed a few times already, but if it behaves
as authn/authz it should be named into that schema.

Otherwise I don't see any reason to jettison it, and we seem to have some
small consensus that shipping "graduated" non-experimental modules with 2.4
is the way to go.  It's simple, as you say, and works or does not work, so
dropping "experimental" seems like the way to go.
