Ah, I see. In principle that's fine, but in practice I suspect it's  
easier for you to edit the content on your own site. OTOH if people  
are happy to maintain the content via WebDAV then I'm happy to host  
extensions at http://lv2plugin.in/extension/foo or similar.

There should definitely be links to the extensions from the spec site  
either way.

Well, for any really. URIs are free and we're not going to run out ;)
