That was my understanding as well. Maybe I should have spelled it out.

I think of the diff of this patch as "let's check `foo->valid` before we
`use(foo->bar)`", which should only be able to regress in case foo isn't
valid. And ...

... this matches my thinking.

I hadn't thought too much about this. I guess that for some simpler
extensions--versions dependencies it would be feasible to first parse
everything, then, depending on the version we've identified, forget
about any "irrelevant" extensions. Again, nothing I've thought much
about, and seems to be safely out of scope for this patch.
