Re: [Public WebGL] readPixles() can't access float values (OES_texture_float interaction)

The spec. is not unclear. The extension spec. does not amend Section 4.4.5 of the core OpenGL ES 2.0 spec. which includes

The following internal formats are color-renderable: RGB565, RGBA4, and RGB5 A1. No other formats, including compressed internal formats, are color-renderable.

and similar limitations on which formats are depth- and stencil-renderable.

If WebGL's version of OES_float_texture is allowing floating point textures to be renderable, then it is a different extension and it needs to document all the relevant interactions. If it is intended to be the same as OES_float_texture then allowing the float texture to be color-renderable is a bug.

Thanks. If the spec is too unclear for you to support attaching float textures to FBOs, then maybe we should explicitly disallow that in WebGL, for portability's sake.
