Until RFC 3028 defines the general policy that extensions are compatible

IMHO, people tend to forget defaults, so saying something explicitly is always a better thing.

 IMHO formal definitions leave no room for assumptions,
but assumptions leave room for incompatibility.

Sorry for being so pedantic, but the specification is simply not complete
and I know from personal experience that it causes lots of unnecessary
and annoying work for someone writing a new implementation.
The current de-facto rule is that the latest published document should list how the extension described in it interacts with other previously published extensions.
