As you have seen, EABI was not really useable until very, very recently!
If you say that it now works, I will mark it as being no longer EXPERIMENTAL.

Yes and no. I prefer to have samples build with latest versions. That's my
point of view, though, and is mostly open to discussion. But on the binutils
side, releases are not coming very fast, and I try to keep up-to-date as much
as possible, to lower the cost of updating when the new release comes out.

On the other hand, not all components are using EXPERIMENTAL features, so
this is highly open to discussion.

Once again, depends. Using relases is no more a token for stability than some
snapshot versions.
