Counterintuitively perhaps, we already have a way to deploy hop-by-hop
extensions. That relies on a chance to the negotiated protocol.

If we need end-to-end extensions, then intermediaries need to ignore, but
pass, unknown stuff. However, I think that we need to allow for
intermediaries that don't want to assume the risks associated with
extensions and allow intermediaries to drop unknown frames, but only if
they drop *all* unknown frames.
