C.6 Texture Proxies

Texture proxies allow a GL implementation to advertise different maximum texture image sizes as a function of some other texture parameters, especially of the internal image format. Clients may use the proxy query mechanism to tailor their use of texture resources at run time. The proxy interface is designed to allow such queries without adding new routines to the GL interface. These additions match those of a subset of the EXT_texture extension, except that implementations return allocation information consistent with support for complete mipmap arrays.
