To phrase the experiment judgment differently, either after tree years 
there will be sufficient demonstrated value to justify a permanent 
allocation, or there won't.  It would take a strange situation to extend 
the experimental allocation (although of course we can not foresee every 
possible situation.)

Since I do not expect the IESG to commit to specific criteria (other 
than those already documented in RFCs) for granting the permanent 
allocation, I don't see much that can be said.

If you really want, I suppose that we could add a sentence saying that 
after the experiment, permanent allocation will be evaluated using the 
usual criteria for such requests.
