Maybe, maybe not. This may depend on what exactly registries provide.

Yes, kind of. Some people suggested such an extension mechanism would
be needed but we lack experience with it. So the parameters are more

/tasks/task/parameters. (But then it is even less clear how parameters
associated to a task and to an action are merged.)
