I'm sure you're aware that RSS 1.0 extensions are just RDF vocabularies. 
http://www.schemaweb.info/ has a good list of RDF schemas, all of which 
can be used with RSS 1.0.

I don't have any hard evidence to hand, but I suspect that Dublin 
Core[1], syndication[2], content[3], admin[4], FOAF[5], and possibly 
bio[6] are very popular and useful extensions. I certainly see them all 
the time when I'm processing RSS.
