New fields are occasionally added to civic addresses.  A backward-
compatible mechanism for adding civic address elements to the Geopriv
civic address format is described.  A formal mechanism for handling
unsupported extensions when translating between XML and DHCP civic
address forms is defined for entities that need to perform this
translation.  Initial extensions for some new elements are also
defined.  The Location-to-Service Translation (LoST) protocol
mechanism (defined in RFC 5222) that returns civic address element
names used for validation of location information is clarified and is
normatively updated to require a qualifying namespace identifier on
each civic address element returned as part of the validation
