I guess we then need some kind of feature flag that is internal to
LibreOffice, akin to what major web browsers now do for experimental

For example I hate the experimental features flag, it puts a bunch of
totally unrelated features under the same room, and too coarse in
general. I was thinking we should kill it and have individual options
for each experimental feature, but configuration options being a part
of stable interface kills the whole idea.
