Example of real world usage of function bind syntax

In Babel all the experimental features are behind flags and the docs (http://babeljs.io/docs/usage/experimental/) are very explicit about their status:

> Subject to change

> These proposals are subject to change so use with extreme caution. Babel may update without warning in order to track spec changes.

Even the blog posts announcing new features (http://babeljs.io/blog/2015/05/14/function-bind/) have warnings at the top:

> Warning: This syntax is highly experimental and you should not use it for anything serious (yet). If you do use this syntax, please provide feedback on GitHub.

So I’m curious to hear what suggestions you have to make this clearer.
