Your substantive points are irrelevant. We are not talking about WebGL.

Firefox, Opera, Safari, Chrome and a whole collection of WebKits: yeah, 
this extinguish thing has *obviously* worked brilliantly for us so we'll
stick to it. Duh, even.
Please cut the trolling, the speculation and the rants. This is a mailing 
list. People come here to do work. If I want to see people going off into 
the weeds of their pet conspiracy theories there are far more entertaining
