OpenGL support in EGL 1.4

I see no changes regarding client API's in the updated EGL spec.
OpenGL was already an offical Client API before, and indeed we're
using that for the
wayland-demos clients, since cairo supported only opengl, not gles2,
until recently.

The FAQ doesnt need to be updated, nothing in there says OpenGL is not
used because of EGL.
It says because of GLX symbols, which are avoided in the compositor by
using gles2.
