ANGLE - Translating OpenGL ES 2 code to DirectX?

Hi Tobias,

I took an extensive look into exactly what angle provides in terms of a 
feature set, and at the time, found that it wouldn't really get us 
anything. Technical challenges aside, being able to run the GL pipe on 
windows is not limited by prism, in fact in the past me and other 
engineers have used windows es2 to vet out platform specific bugs. I 
think we just don't ship with that support.

I do think one interesting thing to set up would be to use it to 
validate our shaders (if all the legal stuff worked out and we were 
actually able to use it).
