Wouldn't this only be allowing one earlier stage to a series that already
satisfies your criteria i.e. a contraction of places to zero where the
higher stages successively add them?

I assumed that would be the case, however I think it is a good example of
what would be named as an extension if, as PJE wants, there are no
guidelines at all. I do think some rationale for what is generally
considered to be an extension, and what isn't, is worth having - whether a
firm rule or just a guideline.
