Sorry for not realizing this before, but the "NOT_AVAILABLE" status
code seems pretty useless, because if the web browser is so old that
it doesn't support WebGL, then it definitely won't support delivery of
the webglcontextcreationerror event.

NOT_AVAILABLE "WebGL is not implemented or not enabled in this browser"

I think the current meaning is confusing  (and indeed useless).
IIRC the original planned intent for this status code, meaning should be something like :

"WebGL is currently disabled or temporarily unavailable because of high resource usage by other tabs/programs."

Which makes it a bit more useful as it allows apps to present the user a more helpful message (and ask to try again - something not to do with NOT_SUPPORTED).
