generalize and geometryEngine; How to use generalize maxDeviation?

I'm using V3.13 geometryEngine to buffer from activateDrawTool on a esri-web-mercator image.  Because my project is low precision, I want to reduce the number of vertices in the returned polygon.  I have employed geometryEngine.generalize on the result.

Question 1 - are there properties of some object I can set to have geometryEngine.geodesicBuffer return a generalized geometry?

Question 2 - concerning maxDeviation - if I use 10.0 does this mean a resulting vertice will be within + or - 10 esri-web-mercator units from where it should be?
