What kind of extensions are we talking about?  From your doc, I can see

* Management Extensions
* Directory Extensions
* Container Components

Management extensions would include certain things like JMX support and
Instrumentation support.

Directory extensions would include JNDI integration, context value
customization, etc.

Container Components include privileged code that runs in the container
space.  Perhaps a shutdown component, or something else along those lines.

Is there anything else?
