I think it is not an issue: you can append a text node to a canvas element
whether it was created with createElement() or appeared as <canvas></canvas> in
the markup; there's no difference between the two.

Cufón could add the text to the canvas instead of as a sibling span, but it
appears they don't do it because of a bug in Opera.
