http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/section-declarative.html  
marks 2D vector graphics and animation out of scope because it is already  
adequately addressed by SVG which can be embedded in XHTML.

Embedding SVG (and MathML for instance) in HTML is an area I and others  
have been looking into during the TPAC (and also on this mailing list, on  
weblogs, etc.), but we don't have a good enough proposal yet or  
implementation experience for that matter to show that it could actually  
work.
