Being out of things a bit, I did not realise it was not possible already.
I think making it extensible is *very* useful. GEO is a good example.
But I think any Z39.50 attribute set that comes along that defines a
new non-USE attribute will also benefit, including things like structure
attributes (as you point out for dates).
I understand the rationale for renaming "index sets", but "context sets"
does not leap out with clear semantics. Got a better name? (CQL Schema?
So I agree with Section 4, but it would be nice to have a more meaningful
name than "context set". "CQL Profile" seems not bad - its even what
you titled your proposal page ;-)
