> 1. BufferSource (and what it expands to) copies by default.

At what point does the copy occur?  At IDL argument conversion time for the
BufferSource argument, or after all argument conversions are done but before
entry into the algorithm prose?  Does this only apply to BufferSource, or to
typed array and ArrayBuffer arguments in general?

I assume WebGL will end up using [UnsafeReference] for performance reasons,
unless we make the copy happen at entry-into-prose time; then it could probably
use the copying behavior.
