as the one who drafted "Extended conditions" I would like to make some
comments. The proposal should not compete with "Access restriction 1.5" (or
similar proposals). My proposal aims to consolidate and unify existing tags
instead of proposing a complete new way of tagging -see the one example at
the beginning of the proposal. "Extended conditions" will not change any of
the existing access restriction tags and also not change the existing ":"
separator for compatibility reasons. This can not be done without some
"dirty" workarounds like defining [access] and [all] as default values but
it would be compatible with existing and generally accepted tagging. "Access
restriction 1.5" would change many of widely used tags and as such require a
much more complex, long discussion and evaluation. So I suggest to differ

i) making some smaller changes to the existing tagging very soon to enable
people to tag some common cases like 

ii) discussing the future of access restrictions which will also replace i)
once agreed.
