Hmm. sXBL anyone?

Regarding <canvas>. <canvas> is mostly done. There are three  
implementations in browsers that are becoming more interoperable each  
release. There's at least one scripted implementation for Internet  
Explorer. There are multiple testsuites covering the functionality  
provided and there's a pretty solid specification in development for over  
two years with a few minor oustanding issues.
