Given that the proposal is "Add an attribute", (and assuming that it copies the sentence or so to give you complete explicit editing instructions to execute the proposal), I would expect a counter proposal that explains *why* it is a bad idea to document the existing behaviour of browsers in this way.

Are you saying that browsers actually do something when a usemap attribute is present on the canvas element? Which browsers? Do you have a test case?
