Rob, how do you see this working? It seems pure chaos if both the CUA and
CAP can do whatever they want in terms of behavior. This CAP protocol will
only work if we nail down the semantics of what a CUA must do and what the
CS must do with regard to "extensions".
We are talking about "standardized" extensions here, right? The discussion
so far did not leave any room for non-standard, experimental extensions.
These beasts smell like real interoperability problems-in-the-making to me.
Can you explain more of what you envisioned here?
