The draft extensions text of SpecLite [1] [2] is divided into 2 areas: 
designing extensibility into your technology (i.e., via the specification) 
and extensions affecting conformance.   As a result of yesterday's telcon 
(19 Apr), the following is open for discussion......

1.  Designing extensibility into your specification - can this be done for 
all specifications or are there some technologies and areas (e.g., I18N, 
Accessibility) that don't apply?

2. The complexity inherent to DoV interaction is not presented.  Should 
there be a discussion and/or requirement about the interrelationship 
between extensions and other DoV?  Can this be accomplished with through 
examples and scenarios?

3.  It may be the case that the second area, (extensions affect 
conformance) is not exclusive to extensions, applying to any optional 
behavior.   Are there things in this section that only apply to extensions?
