I think it makes sense to leave these enums as is, just in case it is

The goal of WebGL so far has been if you get an extension you have that feature. Leaving those 2 queries opens up extensions to break that idea. Why not just get rid of them and their by not allow extensions that are likely to break for devs who forget to check?
