I think this option is better. I don't like the idea of a developer of an
extension being required to provide their contact information. I am sure
many developers voluntarily provide it for support, but I think it would not
be a good idea to make it a requirement.

I think the badges for which extensions are supported on the extension site
is a great idea.
