hm... I don't think #131 will address this issue in its entirety 
because there are undefined terms re extensions other than 
"registration extension" and "authentication extension".  Even given 
unprompted extensions having gone away ( upon merge of PR #130 ), we 
still arguably have notions of...

* client+authnr-processed extension
* client-processed extension
* authnr-processed extension

..it seems, though I haven't gone thru the spec here to see if such 
terms would actually be used.  I'm thinking we ought to polish-up the 
extensions language througout sections 
https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#extensions and 
https://w3c.github.io/webauthn/#extension-predef, see what terms are 
necessary to explain things and go from there.. ?
