Microsoft is pretty much the only group who _didn't_ send feedback on 
<canvas> (and they were invited to; it was Microsoft's choice not to 
comment, albeit one informed by legal concerns). Certainly designers and 
Web app developers have had a _lot_ of input on <canvas>.

All the major (known and likely patent-holding) players involved in 
<canvas>'s development are here in the HTML working group, so from a 
licensed specification point of view the easiest thing is to publish it 
through this group.
