For what it's worth, I'm no longer in favour of my own proposal. :)

It was ill-thought-out and does not solve the problem I set out to solve.

My intention was to create a situation where the question of "Is 
extension x used in this request" requires a single dictionary lookup, 
which the extensions field does not solve.

Since that is not really workable without moving away from the use of 
URIs to identify extensions, I'm happy to accept this small wart for the 
sake of keeping things sane and simple.
