what you don't understand I guess is the word abstract, I guess. I 
have used it with the intended meaning of model. So if it's unclear 
for you, there's a slight chance it's unclear for others.

for example in CSS3, it would be the fact to have a mechanism which 
permits extension but only in this way
	-vendor-propriety: value;
Where the extension must always start with a dash.
Where after the dash you must have the vendor's name, for example: moz
and finally the usual semantics of propriety with the right characters.

This is an abstract mechanism or model as you wish, which is define 
for all cases. It's theoretical.
