Is there a roadmap for this, or is it intended to remain a demonstration

Builder is not intended to remain a demonstration only, but developing 
an IDE is currently a lot of work. Some features, like the completion, 
was developed separately. I think in the short term it is easier to 
develop a gedit plugin, and then migrate the features to Builder when it 
is easier to create a new text editor based on GtkSourceView.

A roadmap would be:
- make the gedit, gitg and a debugger features more re-usable, as 
  libraries or git submodules;
- develop text editor features for the C language. The Anjuta code can 
  perhaps be reused for that;
- integrate all the pieces together in Builder.
