Everyone keeps saying this. It's not what the JEP says. 

If it's a client that exposes 10 EXT items, and it's a client I either
haven't seen before, or a version of a client I haven't seen before,
then it's 11 disco requests. 

The JEP makes no guarantee that I can make a single disco request and
get both the base node features, and the 10 explicit EXT node feature.
