"this" means the idea in this thread.

Extensible syntax is a specific, documented proposal.  I posted some
of the idea to this list a long time ago, as Carsten pointed out.

One application of extensible syntax is "this".  :)

You can use extensible syntax for any feature you want.  "this" is
links with special subfeatures that would be difficult to program into
ordinary link syntax.
