If I understand correctly, the above explains why we will not have the problem that Web pages absolutely require GL strings to run.
But they might still require GL strings to run /well/. If they rely on GL strings for more tuning than necessary, then they will be poorly tuned on clients not exposing accurate GL strings.
This is similar to Websites using the UA string to determine whether the client is mobile. These Websites "work" everywhere, but are give a very poor user experience on mobile browsers that weren't recognized as such.
That's why I believe that the availability of GL strings on some UAs will result in a user experience degradation on other UAs.
