#   <Service priority="20">
#     <Type></Type>
#     <Type></Type>
#     <URI></URI>
#   </Service>

We decided not to do it this way (either with two Types or one per
Service) because the extension itself is not a standalone service.  It
requires OpenID.  If you want the extension, you can still look for it
using whatever normal XRDS-querying API you might have, but it is much
clearer to *call* it an extension if it *is* an extension rather than
claiming that it's a completely new type of service.
