I'm not sure that would perform well on a tile-based deferred renderer
like Mali. To perform well, we need to gather an entire frame's worth
of rendering/draw-calls before passing them to the GPU to render. I
believe this is not the typical use-case of EXA? How much of the
framebuffer is re-drawn between flushes?
