D.3 Extensibility and Extensions

Good Practice:
	State the conditions under which extensions are prohibited. This 
doesn't have to be complex, it may be a simple statement (e.g., 
extensions are not allowed). The statement is often associated with the 
conformance clause.

Good Practice:
	Define precisely the extension mechanism

The rest of the prose doesn't change for now. There might be few 
reorganization of the techniques like:

	* Is the specification contain a section for extension?
	* Is there a well defined mechanism to create extension?
	* Is there a well defined template to create exension
	My rationale: The mechanism is the whole thing, not only the pattern 
like in CSS 3 Syntax: "-vendor-property".
