I like Florian's proposal

[2] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012May/0125.html



 it answers many of the questions I raised in: 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2012Apr/0223.html

about the problems with the deployment plans
http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/vendor-prefixes



I think in general that an extensibility method needs a credible 
deployment method. CSS, HTML, HTTP and many other formats
have extensibility methods, most of which wouldn't stand up.

So applying the lesson from CSS vendor prefixes to other extensibility
mechanisms would be worthwhile.
