WHY do you keep conflating the idea of presenting disclaimers to the
end users with ensuring that the *developers* shipping a *product* should
understand how fragile their incubator dependencies are?

If the incubator dependency goes *poof*, it's that developer who is going
to have to reimplement or replace the missing component.

The user isn't part of this equation and wouldn't understand w.t.f. was
going on in the first place.
