Does the container / record need to have different or new behavior when
this extension object is added to it?  Or is the difference encapsulated
in the extension object?  If the latter, I don't see why you need to
muck about with changing the class of the container at all.
I must be missing something...

Even in the former case, you could handle the variance by 
checking whether the record contains any of these extension objects,
assuming they're easily identifiable (either by id or 
by isinstance(foo, klass)).  Of course that might not be cleaner
if the difference in behavior is extensive.

Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, or missing the point entirely...
