I can see three issues here:
1. Your extension doesn't have any namespace and doesn't use the x- 
element.
2. URLs are limited to 1024 bytes IIRC, so your 10k limit can not be  
reached. If you go into the trouble of inventing a new element for it,  
why not put the base64-data between the tags?

3. Your data tag in the example starts with a ' but ends with a ".  
(ok, that's nitpicking)
