I thought we talk about the length of the value if we put all conditional values into one single tag. The length of the value (also of the whole tag) of the ext-cond-proposal is without doubt as short as possible.

We both know this will not happen. Santa told me so ;-)

You may exchange "probably" by "most certainly".

One issue of the ext-cond jumped into my mind again when I read your examples above: in the prop it is written that the most specific value should be taken. But what is "most specific"? I think the correct determination of this could be quite complex. The variants with keys like <key>:condition:<ordering> would solve this IMO.
