Even if there's a massive user base, I would expect site/app authors to  
constantly update the engine to the latest version, especially when the  
engine is built on non-final APIs. That's the way the Web works -  
deployment is cheap.

For example, I've written stuff for WebGL a year ago that does not run  
well in browsers anymore (my guess is changes in GLSL translations) - if  
that was a public site (or at least something that was generating traffic  
or even revenue), I would have updated my code to reflect the changes in  
the latest versions of the browsers.
