Waiting until the Vulkan spec is cast in concrete before we start to

That's quite a good point. Even though WebVulkan may be far in the future, it'd be helpful if the Vulkan WG took input on security from the WebGL WG so that an eventual integration with the web does not become a massive pain in the posterior. Actually, given the rather dismal state of security of native apps on desktops overall, considering security implications of Vulkan doesn't just benefit the Web...
