Personally, I agree with both of those.

The context in which I remember hearing cairo and the platform
mentioned together at cairo was along the lines of "Of the software at
freedesktop.org, what kinds of things do we expect to be baked and
stable at some point", and definitely not that it's there now. I
believe dbus was mentioned as being in a similar class.

Don't worry. It's not baked.
If someone is crazy enough to think cairo belongs in a platform as
stable software, right now, then I'll just go break some more APIs
just to prove them wrong.
We are working towards stability though. And when we get to 1.0, I
plan to be committing to live with that API for quite some time.
