I think you are jumping ahead of things. We don't yet have consensus  
on what problems to solve. We don't have consensus on whether  
"decentralized extensibility" is the right way to solve those  
problems. And we don't have consensus on whether Microsoft's proposal  
(even on the high level) is the right kind of "decentralized  
extensibility" for solving the problems.

I think it would make the situation clearer if you could state what  
problems you want solved, why you believe the HTML WG should solve  
those problems, what "decentralized extensibility" is (so the WG can  
recognize whether alternative proposals constitute "decentralized  
extensibility"), why you believe "decentralized extensibility" is the  
right way to solve the problems and why you believe Microsoft's  
proposal is the right kind of "decentralized extensibility".
