I like this algorithm. The whole info request per EXT seems to be an
over complication. I would prefer it if EXT were treated as opaque to
outside entities. Then, the app could make a SINGLE disco request
without the CAPS node when it sees a new namespace/version/EXT
combination. In fact, before reading the JEP in detail this is what I
had assumed.

Does anybody actually use the per EXT info node requests?
