Is there a downside for running docker experimental features?

  containers, docker, docker-engine

I know that Docker allows enabling experimental features on the daemon side in a rather simple way:

Add/update /etc/docker/daemon.json:

{
"experimental": true
}

And enabling experimental features brings a couple of cool things (e.g. Metrics (Prometheus) output for basic container, image, and daemon operations) and provide early access to future product functionality.

My question is what are exactly the dangers of enabling experimental features? Because they’re not enable by default and I assume they are not ok for production environments as Docker doesn’t offer support for experimental features
