I have two problems with the Extensions section.

1. It says " uses the '/' character to create extensions that are specializations of existing vocabulary"
	Where do you use the '/' character? isn't a valid URI, nor is
	musicGroupMember/leadGuitar2 a valid attribute value for itemprop

2. I guess I should design an extension vocabulary for my own purposes, in particular for applications consuming my data who want to differentiate an ElectricalEngineer from a MechanicalEngineer, for instance. But if I do that, it doesn't help me with search engines who don't know about my extensions. In other words, why use the specialised Place/photo and not the general Thing/image, if search engines don't know Place/photo ?
