Thanks, this looks good. My only remaining concern is in regards to
implementation defined key values. The definition:

If there is no appropriate key value in the key values set, then a key value
must be devised. The key value should be as human friendly as possible and
must not contain whitespace characters. The value must be composed only of
characters in the ranges \u0030..\u0039, \u0041..\u005A, or \u0061..\u007A,
and must begin with a character in the range \u0041..\u005A.

is not adequate to prevent name collisions between custom definitions. Some
normative convention is needed to prevent collisions.
