That is fine and all good discussion. 
We know of another vendor who plan to release a bbdev driver but probably after 20.11.
There is one extra capability they will need exposed, we will aim to have the API is updated prior to that.
Assuming the API get updated between now and 20.11, is there still room to remove experimental tag in 20.11 or the expectation is to wait regardless for a full stable cycle and only intercept ABI v22 in  21.11?

Thanks
Nic
