There's this post as well, Adobe LiveCycle Designer Cookbooks by BR001: Custom Properties .  Basically it is an area of a XFA form where you can put whatever content your system needs.  I tend to use the <desc> element instead as this shows up on the Info tab in Designer, though if you are importing a schema with annotations these will also be loaded under the <desc> element so you may want to keep them separate.  The <desc> and <extras> can be access the same way and there is an example in the blog above.
