No, it does not.  Following your own insistence that WG members
focus on the /problem/ rather than on potential solutions,
"examples where dynamic and interactive graphics have been used
in the past" demonstrate the need for "dynamic and interactive
graphics".  They do /not/ demonstrate a need for "canvas",
which is (one of many possible) solutions.
