IMHO website and slides are 'different' from, say, a poetry extension
or a PHP or C++ specific extension?
 the latter add elements|attributes, perhaps remove some, i.e.
customize the tagset. Website and slides may do so in a little way,
but it is largely in the transformation to an output format that
the work lies?

If someone is concentrating on generating a new vocabulary for XXx
then how that fits with other YYY customizations won't be at the top
of their priority list?

That would be the concern.
