yes, there's nothing that would not prevent that... other than we
didn't apply for NLNet budget to do so.  we'd not *stop* someone from
implementing an OpenGL library on top of the hardware - we'd welcome

however i think such a person would find, particularly when it comes
to the GL Shaders, that one of the prerequisites for having a
successful OpenGL engine is: EXACTLY the same underlying shader engine
as is found and required for Vulkan.
