i put just the same opinion 1-2 months ago :)))  but i got answer that
current Haskell standard are too restrictive and ALL real programs use
extensions. we need to standartize these de facto used extensions in
order to simplify constructing of libraries and teaching language in
universities/courses. we must explicitly declare the language really
used in 2005, which is far away from the language used in 1998
