The following answers have been successfully submitted to 'Accept
requirement for immediate mode graphics a la canvas element?' (HTML
Working Group) for Google, Inc. by Ian Hickson.

Accept requirement for immediate mode graphics a la canvas element?
Do use cases such as games, shared whiteboards, and yahoo pipes 
and others in the ESW wiki 
motivate a requirement that HTML 5 provide an immediate mode graphics API
and canvas element?

This is a proposal to close ISSUE-15

Note discussion 19 November where some WG participants consider this
implicitly in the scope of our March 2007 charter under "Forms and common
UI widgets such as progress bars, datagrids, menus, and other controls"
but others would prefer to make it more explicit in the charter. If this
question carries, Dan Connolly, Chris Wilson, an Mike Smith should seek
review of a clarified charter per section 5.3 Modification of an Activity
of the W3C Process document.

 * ( ) Yes
 * ( ) No
 * ( ) Concur (cast vote with the majority)
 * (x) Blank vote

I strongly feel that a canvas API is already in scope, and I strongly
object to reopening the charter rathole. But the question asks whether I
think it is in scope and says that a "yes" answer reopens the rathole.
Comments (or a URI pointing to your comments): 
The working group strongly objected to the desire to open the charter
rathole during the face to face meeting. This question should at least
have the option of answering "I believe canvas to be within the charter,
and do not believe we need to change anything in the charter" separately
from the current "yes".
