Phillip are you still interested in contributing your Canvas tests?
In March this was discussed and you were going to update some of your canvas tests.

Good point - I believe they were needed for Firefox 2.0 and pre-release versions of Opera 9.5 in order to get sensible results in test cases that weren't designed to be testing getImageData, but all modern browsers implement getImageData correctly so it shouldn't be necessary. 
I've changed my local copy now so it simply calls the function with no extra workarounds (though I won't update the online copy until I've tested it more carefully).

In the specific case of <canvas>, we should start with [1] which provides good coverage of the spec.
