Anne responded in

but I don't think that moved us forward; I wasn't suggesting we reuse  
the PI syntax, and figuring out an extensibility story is not  
something you want to do at the last minute (in this case, if you do,  
you'll have to change the syntax of the entire header to make it  
extensible).

I also haven't seen any rationale behind keeping the header as it is.
