That comes as a consequence of a larger problem: what features are enabled
when you check that box?

It seems like you are signing a contract with your eyes closed. It is a sort
of black box that enables features you need (in my case macros) but also all
kind of unknown stuff...

In the case of the specific bug you are mentioning, I reported that I could
duplicate the crash. After your post I disabled the experimental features
and the crash no longer occurs.

I think that before adding that tag it should become clear what features
could be affected by that switch.

It is now obvious that anything RTF related can be affected. But what else?

(and please bare in mind that we are NOT developers so asking us to read the
code won't help ;)
