It's valid Haskell 98 as far as I know.
Advantages of listing the extensions used are
* Cabal knows whether hugs, for example, can compile the package
* Assuming hugs can compile it, you don't have to have give a different
flag to enable extensions in hugs
* It allows us to see, by querying hackage, which extensions are used a
lot and which are not used at all.
