I'd like to ask that this call be postponed for a couple of days.  The discussion between Rik and Jatinder around the naming of drawFocusRings is not complete.  Jatinder's mail bounced, and has just been forwarded to the list.  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-a11y/2013Nov/0015.html 

Microsoft would like to discuss this at TPAC during the HTML5 meeting, or at next week's html-a11y meeting.

Subject: Call for Consensus: Canvas 2d spec

Hi folks,

this is a call for consensus on the following two propositions:

The HTML Accessibility Task Force accepts that path objects and relevant methods operating on them, hit regions, text metrics other than width, and ellipses could be moved to Canvas2d level 2 - i.e. a later verion of the specification.

The HTML Accessibility Task Force accepts that the drawSystemFocusRing and drawCustomFocusRing methods on elements in the "canvas shadow DOM" are "at risk" in Canvas2D - and that without implementation, the Canvas2D specification could drop them  to move to Recommendation.

For more background to these questions, please see

Silence will be considered assent, but positive answers for each of the two propositions are preferred. Responses will be accepted until Midnight Hawaiian time on Wednesday November 13, and should be made in this email thread.
