>From my understanding, we needed provisions for allowing non-ITS namespace
markup in the non-normative schemas. We seem to have/get this once Sebastian
has passed some ODD-related info to Felix.

What remains to be done wrt. the extensibility issue is the following:

0. advice people against working with extensions for which ITS capabilities
exist; example: If your vocabulary captures translatability information with an
attribute "myVoc:TranslateMe='y'" than use the ITS mapping/passthrough
capabilities rather than working with an extension "myVoc:Translate='y'"

1. make sure that the spec. mentions that ITS does not provide ITS-specific
extensibility (and rather relies on standard XML-namespace based mechanisms)
2. mention that the non-normative schemas are designed for use with standard
(that is XML-namespace based) mechanism
