I don't think that people aren't aware that pd extended bundles a lot of 
things that aren't in pd vanilla. I think that it's made pretty clear. 
Those who don't know that, also have no intention of making their patches 
work with vanilla, if they even know the existence of vanilla.

So, suppose that they do know that pd-vanilla is pretty vanilla, then the 
real problem is more like : if they write [zexy/wrap] in the patch, it 
doesn't work with a vanilla+zexy setup, and then, if they do it as [wrap] 
instead, they run into the problems you listed.

Moral of the story is that the "zexy/" prefix is only available in the 
software in which it is available and not in the one in which it isn't.
