As Sam said, I would refer to the HTML Design Principles for that. The 
purpose of extension specifications is emphatically not to produce 
specifications targeting vertical domains unrelated to the Web at large; 
rather the goal is to make it easy for people to propose new features of 
a certain level of complexity, and easy for others to review such proposals.

As such, the design principles that apply are the same as for anything 
else in the stack.
