That's IMO the case (Michael, your opinion?). It's more like docbook-xsl
depending on the extensions in special parts (e.g. the callouts-list
handling). The code-base of the extensions also doesn't change very
often: about 3 commits in 9 years (from what I can see).

I agree. But I think, it can be maintained separately. I will of course
be near to this package in every case (maybe co-maintaining).
