In addition, we are petitioning the WebGL working group to remove the security warnings from this and the WEBGL_debug_shaders extensions, as we believe that exposing this information is not as privacy-sensitive as once feared, and the benefits of making it available to real-world WebGL applications have been clearly demonstrated.
Please send feedback on this plan and the proposal for the WebGL extensions to the mailing list.
What is going to prevent this becoming another user-agent string
