For typical web features this is certainly true. I feel that this case may be an exception because of the way it's been implemented as an extension.
It would be ludicrously bad for an app to query the extension and start using it without checking to ensure the extension was returned first. Such a usage is clearly a violation of the most fundamental principles of good OpenGL/WebGL practices, and it's doubtful that anybody caught doing so will have the technical competency to build something of much merit.
