Here is a last call comment from Jonathan Marsh (jmarsh@microsoft.com) 
on QA Framework : Specifications Guidelines (and Examples and Techniques)
received by the LC form system.

Submitted on behalf of: WS Description WG
Comment type: Substantive
The comment applies to: "Guideline 9 Allow extensions or NOT!"
Comment title: Don't discourage extensibility

The position of the QA framework WG, that extensions should not be allowed, is quite clear.  This is a political position, and doesn't accomodate those working on specifications that clearly demand public extensibility.  In the guidelines, describe conformance.  Discourage extensibility elsewhere.  We note that these guidelines are, themselves, extensible.

Proposed resolution :
