In fact there is an modules/experimental/ tree; mod_noloris is currently
one such module.  Of course, "if it never gets tested" is a handwave.
There's obviously no way for the pmc to assert committers have tested it.
The only filter is the acceptance vote.

This submitted module was not committed to modules/experimental/, but
rather in modules/debugging/

If your desire was to mark this module experimental, you may want to
refine your vote to be more explicit.

As a diagnostic tool this module is toxic in resource consumption, so
in theory, any bugs in this tool are unlikely to cause more pain than
using the tool in the first place.
