we've been talking about automated testing in DAP and the "Web Driver" API based on the draft WG charter[0], and it strikes me that a useful addition which does not seem to be taken into account is that of a screen capture API that will return a capture of the entire scrolling rendering of the page at a given viewport width. This can prove very useful in testing variance in rendering.

Just a thought :)
