Re: [Public WebGL] extension candidates for khronos ratification from community approved

EXT extensions aren’t ratified by Khronos. They are simply multi-vendor extensions.

Objection irrelevant. This understanding of the extension process is derived from the ES-native registries, it has no bearing on the WebGL extension registry. Please consult https://www.khronos.org/registry/webgl/extensions/ for the WebGL extension process.

The EXT_ prefix (as well as any other prefix mirrored from an ES extension) does not have a specific meaning for the WebGL ratification process.

Khronos ratified extensions are those community approved extensions which have been voted upon by the Khronos Board of Promoters

Precedents for non OES extensions that've been WebGL Khronos Ratified:
The status "community approved" was introduced so that WebGL extensions can be moved out of draft (where they would be vendor prefixed) in order to avoid extensions languishing in eternal draft hell until the Khronos board got around to ratify them.

The goal of a community approved extension is to make it to Khronos ratified to complete the process.
