[Public WebGL] Typed WebGLArray sequence parameter types



Is this possible to modify typed WebGLArray sequence parameter types
in the IDL definitions as below?

* WebGLByteArray:
   sequence<long> -> sequence<octet>
* WebGLUnsignedByteArray:
   sequence<unsigned long> -> sequence<octet>
* WebGLShortArray:
   sequence<long> -> sequence<short>
* WebGLUnsignedShortArray:
   sequence<unsigned long> -> sequence<unsigned short>

This change would make the generated interfaces for statically typed
languages (e.g. Java) more useful.

Note currently Web IDL does not have a primitive type for 8-bit signed
integer values. If it is useful for WebGL, maybe we can propose an
addition of it to Web IDL as Geolocation WG requested to add 'double'
in addition to 'float' [0].
