I agree we don't need to over-generalize, I just worry about applicability to lesser-known libraries that we haven't heard of yet. So it would be a good idea to have a plan *if* that need arises.

In any case I assume this is just a stopgap measure until we have true portable type system extensions...

Guido, thanks for the feedback. I've updated the spec to incorporate your suggestions.

Yes, I'm recommending that we fix the names of the various allowable keyword parameters. The popular libraries use these parameter names, and I don't see a need to provide additional flexibility here. Of course, we could add more configurability if there's a need, but I'd prefer to keep it simple.
