I would like to promote it from "experimental" during the 8.0 cycle. I
intend to propose this move between now on the LLVM Dev Meeting.

As to the original topic of this thread. WebAssembly definitely seems
mature enough to promote from experimental. In my view, any backend
that is "stable" at the time of an official release has a certain
obligation with regards to stability of interfaces (command line
interface, object format, assembly, etc etc). It looks like Dan Gohman
answered my question there
and things are now fairly fixed.
