The new extensibility section currently contains the following text:

  <p>Extensions to the <code>XMLHttpRequest</code> interface are reserved  
for
   future work by the Web APIs WG. WGs besides the Web APIs WG may extend  
the
   interface, but MUST coordinate that with the Web APIs WG. UAs MAY extend  
the
   interface, but MUST prefix the new members using a string specific to the
   vendor following the <var>Vendor</var><var>Member</var>  scheme.  
(Normally
   members follow the <var>member</var> scheme.) Company Foo could  
introduce a
   <code>FooFollowRedirect(<var>boolean</var>)</code> method for  
example.</p>
  <p>Authors MAY use extension mechanisms specific to the host language,  
like
   <code>.prototype</code> in ECMAScript.</p>
