A number of functions are currently labelled "experimental" on the official Wolfram Language Documentation Centre. (An example is AskFunction, which appears to be especially suited to my specific purpose.) Is Wolfram Research trying to caution users against using these functions in their code?

What is the real purpose of the "experimental" label? Are these functions likely to be removed in future versions?
