+1 :)

but we may add them to standard definition as "Possible extensions"
appendix. moreover, if some already implemented language extensions
(f.e., Template Haskell) are not good enough to be included in
standard itself, it may be also included here - just to have one place
where many language extensions are described. and also a source for
new features which MAY be included in Haskell2
