Subject [Xmlgraphics-fop Wiki] Update of "ExtensionsForPdf" by AndreasDelmelle

The following page has been changed by AndreasDelmelle:
http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/ExtensionsForPdf

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  The ''type'' attribute is the hint to make sure the catalog dictionary is treated special,
but the same extension could be used for other dictionaries.
  Using the same terminology as in the PDF Reference seems to make sense, as it's a PDF extension.
Using the exact same possible values could lead to an easier translation to PDF.
  
- Thinking about it some more, and starting to prototype this idea, the ''entry'' object seems
to be the key, as it is conceivable to also insert a dictionary by specifying it entirely
as a PDF string. Makes me wonder to what extent we should validate the contents... Ultimate
flexibility vs. the risk of producing corrupt PDF in case of the slightest glitch/typo (?)
