>From the standpoint of the typed array and WebGL specs it's essential to have
both signed and unsigned byte concepts, so dropping support for signed bytes
doesn't work for us.

Since the other integer types in Web IDL are signed, and use the "unsigned"
modifier for the unsigned variants, it seems most symmetric to do the same for
byte.
