The extensibility now introcuced is exactly of the same type as in XLIFF
and as such dangerous, if processing requirements are not properly set.

Apart from saying that the extensions MAY be ignored. It should aslo say
that the extensions MUST not provide features provided by the ITS core
elements attributes. I understand that we can hardly build test cases for
this MUST, but it is important to stress.

It is a substantive change because the schema would invalidate the extended
stuff before.

In order to make the schema changes, the spec must unequivocally say where
those extended elements and attributes are allowed. It is anarchy and not a
standard otherwise.
