It's not proved workable Peter IMHO. People don't like central registries?
It's been tried for many reasons, namespaces was the answer in W3C
(bad one, but a workable answer)

For extensions I favour the requirement that when a user invokes a feature
which creates an extension, he/she is warned about it?
"Hey, this will extend the standard" or something.
That way you know what you're doing? No excuses. Sometimes the feature
will be needed, but it's a user choice. No more vendor lock-in by the back door.
