This breaks the reference from 
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/infrastructure.html#safe-passing-of-structured-data 
to ImageData (which is part of the 2D API), so that would need to be 
fixed somehow. (I don't see any other references which break, other than 
some non-normative comments about canvas text rendering.)
