A SIMD API, however is not. Under the hood, it can be implemented in terms of MMX, SSE, NEON, or just by forgetting about the SIMD bit and pretending like you have separate operations. In particular, you could have a SIMD API that desugars to plain JS as the default implementation in browsers but that JITs can recognize and vectorize as they desire. This sort of API will happen, for sure.

No opinion on the PNG encoder thing.
