If it's that experimental and changing then perhaps it's better off in
some packager's private repo like p.r.c etc.?

Otherwise putting it in a repo where we usually put stuff for doing QA
for either updates for the current RHEL release ("updates-testing") or
even for an upcoming ("rawhide") would not be that good, as we'd like
to draw testers to these repos.

Just to get the picture about what degree of maturity you are
targeting: Where would you place such projects if it were about Fedora
and not RHEL? Rawhide, current Fedora release or not at all?
