What we currently don't have, and probably should add, is a way to
negotiate the format / protocol version (for example in the first message,
similar to the "HTTP/1.1" in "GET / HTTP/1.1").

But generally, parsers shouldn't silently skip over things they don't
understand, except if it's explicitly defined to be implementation
specific / optional (#pragma and such). Could you provide examples of
languages that do support such extension points?
