I don't see how adding optimized methods for bulk math operations would have to live in the DOM, that seems like trying to shoot yourself in the foot mythbusters bending pipe style.


Any such a discussion are possible for any kind of API. Of cousre C++ is faster the JS, no doubt.
Personally, I have never seed any performance issues with matrix operations in our application.
We use hierarchical scene graph and custom 3x4 Affine transformation, which is being converted to 16-float native array buffer and very end of the pipeline.
Also we use collision and ray tracing.

Should we discuss a native API for collision and rays as well ?
What about physics native API ?
What about other Math common computations ? Quaternions ?
Should we talk about each library API  ?

The solutions like asm-js are generic approach to significantly speed up any performance sensitive situations.

I agree with you about :

It would be implemented in the browser, not related to WebGL, and in my opinion, unusable for it.
