You are right.  The rules are indeed different.  We will need to
discuss this during the next working group meeting and come up with a

We use normalized integers as vertex attributes and our math rely on conversion rules described in GLES 2 spec (section 2.1.2). However, we were experiencing problems with it. Further investigation showed, that in GLES 3 and GL 4.2+ conversion rules were changed (https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Normalized_Integer#Signed). I've coded a repro case: http://output.jsbin.com/wezetob/1. The canvas'll be red if GLES 3 conversions are used by an implementation and green if GLES 2 ones. Testing different devices I was able to find some that produces green (on attached photo).
