Well, maybe some slight hyperbole, but on a small laptop screen it's a
'noticeable' reduction I think. Your solution sounds good to me.
I forgot to mention that it would be OK with me if we also made hiding
the warning bar sticky so that the setting is remembered.  I just
haven't done that yet, but I will try to do it unless someone else does
it first.


Instead of hiding forever, I would like to revisit Dan's suggestion,
that the warning reappears after a while. But instead of taking a time
interval the attached patch automatically hides the warning for a
certain number of restarts (here 20) before showing it again. Of course
we can chose another limit for the counter.

I don't like this idea.
Why should we annoy the GUI users with some message reappear at random??


Seemingly at random, that is. Nonetheless, I prefer the time-stamp approach because what it means is that if the user hasn't used the experimental GUI for a while he or she gets a reminder it is experimental.
