To reiterate in this context, after reading Dan's post: Khronos Conformance (Vulkan, OpenGL, OpenCL) is absolutely critical for products to enter certain high profit markets.

The Khronos Group also has trademarks, and it is critical that their Industry Standard requirements be met.

It will be absolutely essential for RISCV Conformance / Compliance / Standards to *not* get in the way or impede Khronos Conformance / Compliance / Standards, in any way, shape or form.

This is why I suggested the [new] "3D UNIX Platform" as it makes it clear that its specialist requirements are completely separate and distinct from, and do not impact in any way, the [present] UNIX Platform Spec.
