I don't think I understand what you are getting at regarding #132. Perhaps
the issue is that I never got around to updating Requirement 2 to bump the
version number. (I just added that as issue 188 / pull request 189.) A
1.0/1.0.1 implementation would have extension names as annexes and a 1.0.2
implementation would have them as sub-annexes. We haven't been rigorous
about avoiding SHALL statements outside of enumerated requirements.
Addressing this could get complicated and could easily do more harm than

Regarding #137, I like the idea of an additional column. I opened up issue
190 <https://github.com/opengeospatial/geopackage/issues/190> for that
purpose. However, this issue is too complicated for me to resolve

I haven't heard specifically, but I assume there will be a 30 day review
period or something like that before 1.0.2 can go up for adoption vote. I
am just trying to get that clock started. We are still able to fix issues
after that.
