[Public WebGL] Proposals for two new WebGL extensions



I wrote up drafts for two possible WebGL extensions: WEBGL_debug_shaders and WEBGL_debug_gpu_info.

https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/extensions/proposals/WEBGL_debug_gpu_info.html
https://cvs.khronos.org/svn/repos/registry/trunk/public/webgl/extensions/proposals/WEBGL_debug_shaders.html

WEBGL_debug_shaders exposes the translated shader source.
WEBGL_debug_gpu_info exposes the unmasked VENDOR and RENDERER strings from underlying graphics driver.

I believe these two extensions provide important information to WebGL developers.  However, as stated in the drafts, both extensions should only be available to privileged code in a browser, not the regular content due to user privacy concerns.

Comments are welcome.
