Who would be the person(s) to decided whether the extensions are OK
for GNU? Since my (to be) proposed extension follow the GNU way of
interpreting the augmentation data, it seems to me that I should first
get approval (or at least a review/comments) for GNU first before
reaching out to the DWARF standard. Does that make sense?
