Won't the same choice arise when at some point in the future CSS filters wants to move to a new version of GLSL ES? It's very clever of MS to cite being able to change the GLSL version as the reason for their objection but it seems inevitable it will happen some day.
It's not clever. If their desire was to ensure that future revisions can be cleanly supported, they would propose to make the first version the only valid syntax, but have a mechanism to target future revisions. They did however not propose that, instead they proposed to just leave the syntax entirely open, ostensibly because they intend to break it for everybody, again.
