Why does Wesnoth stay in experimental?

I did some testing if the latter Wesnoth prereleases and I wonder whether
Wesnoth should stay in experimental for such a long time.  I understood it
once Lenny was not released but now it is definitely time for unstable -
from a Debian point of view and from a Wesnoth development status as well
because we are even in the prerelease phase which perfectly fits things in
Debian which is called *unstable*.  People who are running unstable and
might whine about breaking their savegames should be aware of this or just
pin their older versions.

The reason why I'm writing is that you prevent me from continued tests
because I always have to download the source and build myself since
wesnoth-core is not autobuilded for my arch (i386) and I do not want to
play this game for no real reason (which perfectly existed when Lenny
was not yet released but now it is void).

Thanks for maintaining wesnoth
