This seems to add a lot more complexity and force us to maintain a
white list of properties. Now that it turns out that there is no
validator team, who would maintain this list? Also, what constitutes
“widely used”?

What other reasons are there not to issue warnings and essentially
tell authors that they’re “on their own” when using vendor-specific
extensions?
