You know, I've gone back and forth on this.. section 4.4.5 in the ES 2.0 spec (2.0.24) is unclear.  It states:

Note the usage of the generic "attached images" -- no distinction between a renderbuffer and a texture.  However, the caption for table 4.5 states "Renderbuffer image formats, showing their renderable type ...", explicitly stating Renderbuffer.

But then later on in section 4.4 at the start of page 117:

> Although OpenGL ES defines a wide variety of internal formats for
> framebuffer-attachable images, such as texture images and renderbuffer images,

and states that checking framebuffer completeness is required.  This seems in direct conflict with the statement that the formats not listed in 4.5 are not renderable, unless the intent was to say "nothing outside of table 4.5 is renderable, but formats in 4.5 /may/ be renderable", which seems wrong.

Is this confusing to anyone else?  I'll file a bug against the ES spec if it's not just me :-)

(Note that we allow attaching a RGBA texture as a framebuffer color attachment without problems, and it works on just about every mobile device I've tried it on.)
