Note that I don't speak for the whole Wayland community, just as an 
implementer of one of many Wayland compositors. But yes, that's what has 
happened with moving from wl-shell to xdg-shell and with more 
specialised extensions such as xdg-foreign and wlr-layer-shell. I 
anticipate that where there is sufficient justification additional 
features will be added either by updating existing extensions or by 
adding new ones.
