Registration of FragID prefixes for Extensions

If you are using your own extension elements or attributes in XLIFF 2, and the extension has identifiers, you MUST register the prefix corresponding to your extension's namespace, so that tools can point to the element following the Fragment Identifier mechanism of XLIFF 2
