The comment on the change is:
Added requirements for Woden-47

  {{{WSDLComponent}}}, the super-type of all WSDL 2.0 components, declared the method:
  {{{getComponentExtensionsForNamespace(NSuri)}}}, which returned the {{{ComponentExtensions}}}
implementation object for the specified extension namespace. The client application could
then use its extension-specific API to access the relevant extension properties.
+ === The WODEN-47 Requirements ===
+ The only way that Woden's client applications can access extension properties is via these
statically-defined, compile-time extension property APIs declared by the {{{ComponentExtensions}}}
subtypes. Some applications need a more flexible approach that provides a more ''generic''
API for accessing extension properties, without requiring detailed knowledge of each {{{ComponentExtensions}}}
subtype API. For example, WSDL editors or GUI tools should be able to display any WSDL, including
it's extensions, without predefined knowledge of all possible extension-types and their specific
APIs. They need to be able to retrieve these properties as ''generic'' extension properties,
via a common programming model.
