Command features require deep changes within REBOL, e.g. for new datatypes
such as struct!. This goes far beyond a simple set of functions.

True, but only temporary. Command is a commercial product, with full
customer support and very thorough testing. Core experimentals are
temporary, time-limited versions for interested "gurus" -- not guaranteed
to be stable or tested at all. Once all new features of Core experimentals
are stable and tested, expect them to be included in the full versions of
all REBOL products.
