I agree with Stephen on this (narrow) point. The draft is on Standards 
Track, which means is proposes a standard. The fact that it is an 
"extension" is irrelevant in TLS: lots of things that are part of the 
standard; see Section 4.2 draft-ietf-tls-tls13.

I can find nothing in the draft that says that.

Agree on both counts.
