It's possible in the future. Once:
- WebGPU is closer to finalization
- Raytracing APIs have matured some more across the native APIs
then we would welcome an in-depth investigation into how a raytracing
extension could be added to WebGPU (a proposal for an API that can be
implemented efficiently and securely on top of all relevant native APIs).
