If these files exist in the repo, I could imagine that reviewers will 
reject patches that might/likely break the gn files.

I could also imagine that contributors will be pressured to fix breakage 
of gn files that they introduce, or commits being reverted etc.

So, I'm not sure that a policy of 'it's ok to break this stuff' will 
actually work.

Do you think there will be some point in time that these files will be 
out of 'experimental' status?

Thanks,

Stephen.
