HTML-standard should define the Context Menu API for browsers.
The absence of this API inhibits the development of canvas- or
svg-applications.

Is the Context Menu an attribute of canvas tag?
No. One html-document can encapsulate multiple instances canvas-application
(there is no sense to make copies of the context menu).
Is the Context Menu an attribute of html-document?
No. On one web-site may be published, many html-document included various
instances of a canvas-application (does not make sense to create a copy of the
context menu in different documents).
Is the Context Menu an attribute of web-site or canvas-app?
No. Everyone can be a webmaster or designer canvas-application, and the design
of the Context Menu should be a single.

Summary. Context Menu - is the attribute of the operating system. For Web
applications, Context Menu API should provide browser.

Is it possible to encapsulate the data to create a context menu in
html-document?
No. These data are designed for the browser, not for search engines.

Is it permissible to create a Context Menu by javascript-code? Yes.
Is it permissible to create a Context Menu by data-protocol (url ('data: text /
xml; base64, ...'))? Yes.
Is it permissible to connect the Context Menu by means of meta-tag? Yes.
Does it make sense to transfer in the data to create a Context Menu names of 
javascript-function? No - only identifiers.
