Without it we can't build elementary, which means no enlightenment
either.  I'm not sure if there's enough interest in EFL alone to warrant
debian packages that can't be used for E!

Would it be appropriate to consider for experimental?

I don't think it's a bug.  Early in 1.13, there's a series of patches to
convert from the legacy api to eolian.  At the end, the legacy
non-eolian API is removed (fd0c5ff0).

Thanks a lot for your help!
