So I noticed in the last revision to the TA spec that a decision was made to prevent extensibility of them.  Can someone say why that decision was made? It makes TAs somewhat unique vs. all other builtin types and doesn't match the behavior of Blink or WebKit implementations.

While I am usually in favour of conservative behaviour I'd like more information on the reasoning behind this choice.
