  This seems to round-up Ian's current sentiments:

"In practice it may make more sense to stop people from wasting their time
writing editors in <canvas>, which is not what <canvas> was for, and indeed
makes little to no sense."

Personally, I think that <canvas> sets forward a standard 2D API
for HTML elements to be implemented in. But that's clearly not where Ian 
is at this point.
