Hello WG,

I'm working on the WOFF validator and I've come across two testable assertions in the spec that don't seem to square up with each other:

http://dev.w3.org/webfonts/WOFF/spec/#conform-metadata-schemavalid
> If the extended metadata does not match this schema, it is invalid.


http://dev.w3.org/webfonts/WOFF/spec/#conform-metadata-extensionelements
> In addition, vendors MAY include additional types of metadata as new elements within the metadata element, or as additional attributes of the elements specified here.

Am I missing something or are these contradicting each other? Should the second statement make it clear that the only way to extend the metadata is with the extension element?
