I'd like to return to the questions put forth in previous posts:

1) Is your objection technical or something else?

2) If your objection is based on the issue of "my platform does not support GLSL", what about ANGLE and the fact that WebGL (which is the basis for the shading language specified) is designed to be implemented on Direct3D, and in fact there are currently multiple such implementations available?

3) If the spec were written with no recommended shading language, wouldn't that inhibit widespread adoption? How would we deal with that?

I think we need to understand these issues before proceeding.
