This covers my prior comment: The minute you move to extended BGP Open size, you change what wiggle room we've left for version negotiation.

And perhaps that's fine.  I've spent my entire networking life in BGP-4.  A BGP-5 that only has interop with BGP-4 will likely be fine.

That said, you need to say this in the specs.
