That has already been done by choosing RDF in choosing JSON-LD.
The extensibility is already defined: it's RDF extensibility.

> btw, for those interested in declarative extensibility: i just finished the ASDL experiment of converting the AS1 base schema into a structured list, and our general approach is to treat this no different than any other possible extension of the AS1 core. here's ASDL's current playground, but please keep in mind that this is all about AS1:
