Comment:
--------

fwiw, I agree with this:

   [RFC3692] asserts that the existence of experimental code points
   introduce no new security considerations.  However, implementations
   accepting experimental codepoints need to take care in how they parse
   and process the messages, objects, and TLVs in case they come,
   accidentally, from another experiment.

There are a few words in https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6709#section-5
that might also be relevant. An experimental code point is in effect
a protocol extension with unknown security properties.
