Hi Blink API owners,

I'd like to propose adding an exception to the "Signals from other implementations in an intent-to-ship" document:

for Khronos APIs. The motivation for this is specifically WebGL, which has been managed under Khronos' processes for over a decade.

Khronos' working group guidelines are documented here:

The WebGL working group operates under Khronos' rules of unanimous consensus - see Section 9, "Building Consensus and Making Decisions". It has been extremely rare that topics have come to a formal vote. Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla regularly attend the biweekly meetings.

Specification changes that are committed to:

and reflected in:

can be trusted to have been agreed upon - with no objections - from all of these browser vendors.

Thanks for considering this.

to Ken Russell,
Makes sense to me. I've added this to the list of exceptions in the signals document. Other API owners, please comment if you disagree.
