It does not follow that libraries that have not been submitted
to this process "are less stable and have less quality control". Nor
does it follow that libraries that have been through this submission
process are high quality, accurately documented, bug free and efficient
(at least not ones I've looked at and sometimes even used).

There are plenty of libs bundled with ghc marked "experimental" or
"provisional" (in fact pretty much all of them AFAICS) - even the author
doesn't particularly think they are stable!
