Subject Re: extensions vs bindings

Yes, i am talking about what maps to ExtensionsData in java.

Are the non-standard url parameters exposed in the java API?

It would be nice if they could be mapped to ExtensionsData.
Then following certain restrictions extensions could work the same for
all bindings.
There is a hint of that in CmisExtensionElement:
"Try to avoid attributes because they are binding specific!"
