Dear Chris,

Thanks for your comments on the Last Call version of the QA Framework:
Specification Guidelines[0] - 22 November 2004.

After two weeks from now (on May 18, 2005), the lack of answer will  
be considered as if you had accepted the comment.


Original comment (issue 1150):
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2005Mar/0005.html

The QA Working Group agrees that the wording was too limitative, and has
now reworded Good Practice 19 as follows:
    Good Practice 19:
      Warn extension creators to create extensions that do not interfere
      with conformance
and complemented by the following text in the "what does it mean":
     Extensions can be created in different contexts: directly by
     implementers, in other specifications, etc
