Given...

 - The specialized user experience for <input type=text> on most (mobile)
devices
 - the amount of implementation work required from user agents *and* authors to
recreate the native accessibility functionality of <input type-text>

...the author should not recreate <input type=text> rendering in <canvas>.

I think authoring guidance should be sufficient here.
