The extensions that we're looking at are things that are defined as extensions, but generally have very wide (or universal) availability.  So that argument doesn't apply there -- it's very different defining an extension for webgl for something that will be present on 95% (if not 100%) of target hardware, vs. something that is known to not be present on half or more.
