Hi there,

I just added text specifying the extensibility rules, and also 
introduced an IANA registry for new parameters, see 
<https://github.com/httpwg/http-extensions/commit/eed78be6f8340a1019a22022168c35fa68654feb>:

 > 7.3.  Alt-Svc Parameter Registry

 >    A registration MUST include the following fields:
 >
 >    o  Parameter Name

 >    o  Pointer to specification text
 >
 >    Values to be added to this name space require IETF Review (see
 >    [RFC5226], Section 4.1).

 >    The HTTP Alt-Svc Parameter Registry is to be populated with the

 >    | ma                | Section 3.1 |
 >    +-------------------+-------------+

Note that I specified "IETF Review", which might be controversial (but 
is in line with other similar header fields, such as Cache-Control). 
Feedback appreciated.

Best regards, Julian
