I think registry entries should be just as extensible as the elements
that are registered. This would also align nicely with the spirit of
extensibility of XMPP. In this [1] particular example, it mimics how
data form validation extend form fields on the wire protocol, at the
registry layer.

A situation where additional requirements and further information is
only part of the textual specification and not of the registry entry,
when it *could* be part of the entry, appears undesirable.
