This is indeed an interesting idea.
As I see it there are 2 things we can do (non mutually exclusive):

* People on this list that have experience with one or more "extensions"  
can start documenting them. These surveys can be written directly on the  
wiki, under this section:
http://www.w3.org/2011/webtv/wiki/Profile#Surveys_of_non-W3C_extensions_in_the_TV_space

We don't need a detailed analysis at this stage, is enough an overview of  
what are these extensions and which use cases they address.
Volunteers?

* We can directly reach out to relevant groups and ask for feedbacks.


The final goal is NOT to incorporate such extensions as is (since we will  
find incompatible extensions or extensions that don't fit well with the  
html5 architecture) but to make sure that our profile covers the same use  
cases.
