This may not refer to what most people care about; the "experimental"  
stability of Control.Monad.Trans is related to its use of fundeps and  
undecidable instances, and the possibility (likelihood?) of its being  
switched to type families (which "shouldn't" change its user-visible  
interface, as I understand it).
