Expanding post release would be an ABI change, not feasible.
Remember that *clients* need to interpret this, that's why we defined
the grammar so much in advance.

Once released it is basically unchangeable.
So incremental doesn't work here, unless you have a way to tell how
client should behave when they do not understand what they are
receiving, and the only answer I see in that case is that they will
behave *badly* (ie the only option they have is to deny always).
