I don't think we've really come up with criteria for this list.
It's meant to be an example, not a registry. So far we've added
extensions in without much discussion, since editing the example
is just an editorial change.

I would say that, if the vendor extension is not used in shipping
code or is not documented publicly, there is no reason for the
spec to mention it. It'll just confuse people.
