There is support for server capabilities and client capabilities.
Extension options are:

    4. Extensibility
    ----------------

    This protocol may be extended in three ways, in decreasing order of
    desirability:

      * Items may be added to any tuple. An old implementation will
        ignore the extra items.

      * Named extensions may be expressed at connection initiation time
        by the client or server.

      * The protocol version may be bumped. Clients and servers can then
        choose to any range of protocol versions.

Yes. It doesn't use skels but another similar syntax with a slightly
different marshalling syntax.
