Like i said before, i think the use of "levels" or "flavors" of the
pingback spec could be useful.
The current spec could be level 0 and every pingback implementation must
comply with it. A more advanced and complex spec could be level 1, and
must comply with its spec *and* with the level 0 spec. Same for level
2,etc... Just like an onion :)
The levels could be code named, rather than numbered to avoid the
thought that highest numbers = better.
What would be the disadvantages of this approach?
