WebGL doesn't deal with this issue at all. This is a general web browser issue, and even more generally an issue with any assets available on the web. I'm not sure what the solutions are, but I'm sure many have thought about solving them. One of the great things about WebGL being integrated with the browser is that whatever solution is available there can be used by WebGL.
