Any optional features need to be identified as extensions. If my client allows me to turn XHTML On or Off, then I would need to list it in an extension. Same with File Transfers. I can come up with quite a few use cases where I would want to disable one or both of these features at a per-user level.
I think in a full featured client where all the features are "options", then a large number of EXT items is very likely.
