I have reopned the bug, as you not having any idea does not make the problem go
away.

That's why I chose it as a concrete example. :-)


and

SF: the other question is that with <canvas>.. what do you think is the best
way to get this resolved? If more accessibility stuff doesn't get added to it
could it be removed?

SR: Its possible, but unlikely
... Ian has said that he is committed to accessibility in canvas so he is
motivated also by the upcoming deadline for CR
... People want <canvas> in and accessibility is a hard problem.
