           Summary: Behavior of 'currentColor' in CanvasRenderingContext2D
                    poorly defined
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML Canvas 2D Context (editor: Ian Hickson)

The spec currently implies that CanvasGradient should honor the 'currentColor'
value and resolve it to the canvas element's current color value at the time of

If this is the case, it means that CanvasGradient objects are linked to the
rendering context that created them for purposes of color resolution.

This linkage should either be explicit in the spec, or removed.

Personally, I don't see the use-case for supporting 'currentColor' and believe
it could be removed altogether from the canvas API.
