[Public WebGL] Typed array spec update on endianness

The ECMAScript committee recently reversed an earlier decision to
specify the typed array views (like Uint16Array and Float32Array, but
not DataView) as operating on little-endian data:

  https://github.com/rwldrn/tc39-notes/blob/master/es6/2013-05/may-21.md

Since their inception, the intent of these view types has been to work
with the host processor's endianness, but until now this has not been
specified. The typed array editor's draft has now been updated to
specify this behavior:

  http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#2.1
  http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#7
  http://www.khronos.org/registry/typedarray/specs/latest/#8

Please send any feedback on these changes to the list.

Thanks,

-Ken
