I believe it is more about extensions to atom. How should a group

Why does it need to? Why not just let the client try it.
In app, this is all done by media types. Both vanilla atom + atom
with extensions have the same media type which cause problems.
Won't the extensions be ignored by a server that doesn't want them?
I am not sure leveraging categories as the signaling mechanism fits.
I agree. Atom categories are analogous to folders in CMIS.
It would make more sense to replace most of the CMIS extensions
by using the Atom category mechanism to hold its filing relations.
