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: "9.6 Require that implementations ... alternatives to extensions"
Comment title: Remove Checkpoint 9.6

Extensions may be allowed in order to permit new functionality to be introduced and tested prior to standardization.  There may not be any alternatives (interoperable or otherwise) to the use of a particular extension, and in particular, it is completely impossible for any specification that permits extensions to supply a workaround to the use of every uninvented extension imaginable.  In other words, no specification that allows extensions can conform at priority three, ever.

Proposed resolution : 
Remove this Checkpoint.
