You are right that the RFC has several extension mechanisms and it's not
clear how changes would be incorporated. What do you suggest? Do we
"freeze" the RFC and extension registries at a particular date, and then
move that date via further ballots?

As for which checks are required, the answer is whatever the RFC says,
given that its authors probably thought about what was required quite
carefully. What problem are you highlighting?
