file extension naming conventions

Over the past few months, I've noticed quite a few different file
extensions being used, by the W3C and elsewhere, to describe XML and
.xml - xml files
.dtd - document type definitions
Fair enough - these are defined in RFC 2376:
In addition, I've seen (and used):
.xsl - XSL files
.css - pretty obvious, CSS files
I don't know if these are defined (along with their corresponding MIME
type/subtype) as the others seem to be in RFC 2376.
Elsewhere, however, I've seen the following:
.ent - entities
.xsd - XML Schema Document?
.mod - used in the XHTML modularization efforts
I'm just curious how many more there are, and whether there has been
any effort to document them a la RFC 2376.
TIA for any pointers,
