I think it would be interesting to go through each extension and analyze
why it's there. Is it because the official language is lacking somehow,
is it due to backwards compatibility with previously written programs,
or is it something else?

reference implementation in sync with the language report.

I was under the impression that
VAR a: ARRAY OF INTEGER;
is valid but it doesn't compile so I'm obviously wrong.
