http://code.google.com/p/angleproject/issues/detail?id=297 hasn't been updated so I assume it's still waiting for asomeone to write a patch.

It seems like a good idea to wait for it being decently supported on Windows, before we ratify it, which means that I agree it should be blocked on the ANGLE patch (given that current WebGL browsers rely on ANGLE for rendering on Windows). 

I don't see any other thing blocking it. This extension seems very small and non-controversial, it doesn't leave much room for bikeshed discussions.
