Allow Post Server Extensions To Be Disabled

Registered by Vish Ishaya on 2012-07-31

Some server extensions allow extra parameters to be posted along with the server entity. There is currently no way for these extensions to be disabled, which creates confusion about the core api spec. This blueprint encompasses adding a simple set of checks for enabled extensions before handling this post data.
