In my opinion, adding an extension proposal for a vendor's particular

It's not a viable option. In order to publicly expose an extension it has to move to "Community Approved". In order to do that, consensus has to reached on the proposal, and multiple vendors have to be implementing it. It's a good option for an extension for which that process is intended, and it should if at all possible be intended for every extension. But it could happen that that's not the case (for instance there could be proprietary IP attached to the extension, or no consensus could be reached, or unsurmountable implementation difficulties could emerge etc.), but the vendor would still like to expose the extension. Moving something to "Community Approved" that isn't is perverse.
