Not just accessible content outside the canvas, but accessible content 
outside the canvas that represents static content that is generated with 
the page, and not fetched separate from the page. Most uses of canvas I've 
seen for graphs, including all those I've written, get the data after the 
page is loaded, and would have to generate the table just like they 
generate the graph.
