It would be VERY feasible to know if two paths intersect.

A corresponding function would take two paths as parameters and return a
boolean value.

This would require the following prerequisites, however:

  *  A "Path" object would need to be introduced in
     order to get a container to store a path.

  *  The Path object would provide the same path-related
     member function as the CanvasRenderingContext2D
     interface does.

  *  The Path object would provide the following member
     function:

       - intersects(path)

  *  The CanvasRenderingContext2D interface would
     provide the following new function:

       - drawPath(path)

I'd like to add that in this concept the Path object would also need to provide
transformation functionality so that each path can be animated separately.

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest
title and text for the tracker issue; or you may create a tracker issue
yourself, if you are able to do so. For more details, see this document:
   http://dev.w3.org/html5/decision-policy/decision-policy.html

Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: Path primitives, including operations on them such as detecting
intersections, are definitely on the cards, but first we have to wait for the
current spec to be implemented properly, otherwise browsers will just be buggy
and it'll all be useless. Baby steps.

I understand... Thanks!

I'm looking forward to the upcoming versions then.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm going to add path primitives in this round of additions, but testing for
path intersection, and creating paths based on the intersection or union of
other paths, in a later round. To not lose track of the request for detecting
if paths intersect, I'm moving this back to LATER.
