It's not "extended" syntax. That's the point. It's the existing features of
HTML, like <a>, <button>, <select>, etc, used for their existing semantics, in
a way that can have graceful degradation in legacy UAs, and defined in such a
way that they all expose a uniform front and can therefore be used to display a
consistent UI either in context menus or in toolbars.

Creating a new element for this is just unnecessary. (<command> itself is
unnecessary here, but is interesting because it later will allow us to create
commands that are defined once but exposed in multiple places via reference.)
