It depends on what you want to do. As soon as Macromedia created a tool to draw circles, triangles, and shiny things, it was a **lot easier** for Print/Animation designers to produce content put on the Web through flash.
As soon as "Export as canvas" will be softwares, the people who have no clue will use it. 

You are addressing the wrong crowd. The crowd who will use Canvas will not be Web developers, but people who Motion Graphics Designer, Artistic Director, doing exactly the same mistakes that were done with flash, using motion graphics for the wrong thing. 

NOW, the interesting question is 

Would "creating accessibility hooks in Canvas" (whatever it means) help solve accessibility issues for users of content developed with these tools used by designers.

DESIGNERS  ---> TOOLS ---> CONTENT ---> BROWSERS ---> USERS
