I still think we should make statements about extensibility once. The 
current notation (adding verbose text to each and every element 
description) just makes the spec less readable and harder to maintain. 
Note that already the descriptions are partly broken (for instance in 
13.18).

In particular:

    Extensibility: MAY be extended with additional child elements or
             attributes which SHOULD be ignored if not recognized.
