Take this with a grain of salt, but I vaguely remember some moment when everyone was talking about the announced ability to export to Flash, and a question mentioning HTML 5 or WebGL came up: their (unofficial?) response was something along the lines that they would do whatever it takes to be on any platform they need to if there is demand. I feel they have proven that they really care about wide multi-platform availability, with efforts like their "Union" program and availability on console and mobile platforms. This recent move to support Linux shows that also. If WebGL proves itself to have a large critical mass of developers asking for it, I bet they will very very seriously try to do something. I can't speak to the difficulty of such a move, or compare the actual results of their Flash exporting efforts, but I don't doubt they would do it if it was reasonably possible and there was demand.
