           Summary: align @extension with @vendor--feature (Rob Ennals's
                    ISSUE-41 prop)
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/infrastructure#extensibil
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: xn--mlform-iua@xn--mlform-iua.no

Rob Ennals's Change Proposal suggests that foreign namespaces not officially
part of HTML5, must have an @extension attribute:

    <my-root-element  xmlns="http://my-name-space/"  extension="extension" >

However, in light of the @vendor--feature construct (or @_vendor-feature, bug
9590 is still open), it seems reasonable to let the @extension attribute follow
the same shape. E.g. instead of @extension one could use @xml--ns

    <my-root-element  xmlns="http://my-name-space/"  xml--ns="xml--ns"  >
