I know this is pretty much a boilerplate announcement, but isn't it
about time we dropped the "have not seen enough testing or development
to be considered stable" part? After all, libgnome-desktop is part of
the core GNOME release and we should not be shipping stuff that isn't
considered stable at this point.

Something like "...APIs that eventually belong in libgnome[ui] but are
currently being maintained outside those trees." might be an acceptable
replacement if some justification for existence is needed.
