So are you saying that canvas interactvity should not be allowed on touch based
interfaces?
If so can you get the browser vendors to remove the ability to make canvas
interactive?

If developers can not use canvas to provide interactive content they will be
forced to use SVG, if you truly believe that this bugs premises are based on
misuse of canvas then convince vendors to remove the ability for developers to
misuse it.
Otherwise users with disabilities will be the losers in your moral crusade to
dictate to developers how canvas should be used. 'Just Say No' didn't work to
stem drug use or promiscuity abd it won't work for canvas.
