Hmmm - I just looked at this for the first time. Interesting
package, but as far as I can tell, it's "just" a package. Yeah,
the whole Ada 95 tasking area is much more flexible than Ada 83.
Does System.Tasking extend the set of legal programs?

I was thinking of something that definitely does. A _syntactic_
extension, actually. Hint: it's a proposed extension for Ada 0y
and facilitates producing bindings.
