This can be allowed, but should not be required.  If a given player does not
support plug-in transitions or there are no plug-in transitions installed by
the document, authors should not be required to qualify all the transitions
supported by the player by default.

Note that extension transitions should only be recognized if they are bound
by the document, and thus the author knows in advance whether or not there
will be any naming conflicts. The only requirement is that the author
actually reads the documentation for transition support, which is not
unreasonable.
