That would be rather silly, since you can do everything with LV2 plugins
without extensions that you can do with LADSPA. Extensions are for
things that you can _not_ do with LADSPA.

There is no reason that interchangeable plugins will not work in the
same hosts. But a MIDI synth is not interchangeable with a lowpass
filter or an OSC sequencer. If plugins will require different
extensions, it will be because they do different things. If hosts are
not interested in doing those things or don't even have the
infrastructure for them they will of course not implement those
