Ok that's great! Patch is ready. Who can review it and merge it into webkit?

I suggest to remove the prefixes. These WebGL extensions graduated to
"community approved" status about six months ago, and there are very
few hits on searches for e.g. "WEBKIT_WEBGL_depth_texture", so I doubt
many, if any, applications will break.
