Ah, I did not realize it did that.  Looking at the source I see that  
it is indeed in a haddock comment.  In that case, I'll go back and  
respond to the original question.  I do not know why it's labeled  
experimental, but would hazard a wild guess that it's because the  
relation of Applicative to Monad is still an open question.
