Maciej, you should know that, currently, if this proposal goes forward the
members of the canvas accessibility subteam believe that this proposal
should be in addition and not a replacement for the existing proposal.

      Since you think the proposal was a bad idea, there must be a counter
      proposal you can write that isn't a bad idea. 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?

Regards,
Maciej
