Hi, Charles-

Please don't quote me out of context.  It seems to me that you are using 
my words to support your proposal, which I don't support, or some other 
position, which I haven't taken a stand on.

I said specifically that forcing a choice between retained-mode (e.g. 
SVG) and immediate-mode (e.g. the Canvas 2D API) was a false dichotomy, 
since we have both available in the platform, and that making it easy 
for developers to use both together will promote (though not enforce) 
best practices.  My statement about "false dichotomy" was limited to 
that claim, and isn't a general statement of principle.
