Per my original message: I would first like to see if there is any way 
we can pull the date in.  If we can not, I will agree that what you are 
describing is the obvious consequence.

Any notion that either the HTML WG or the WHATWG view this as "not our 
problem" is rather short-sighted.  I am specifically asking that anybody 
from either the WHATWG or HTML WG who has an interest in making last 
call be this year and may be able to contribute to discussions on making 
canvas be more accessible either attend tomorrow's call or at the very 
least be on the #html-wg IRC channel at that time.

And, yes, I am intentionally cross-posting this request.
