I would ask what semantics canvas has. ol means the content is an 
ordered list, em means the content is emphasized, span and div mean the 
content is different, but in a way not associated with any element. Even 
img and object mean the content is external, (usually) with non-html 

At best I can see canvas being equivelant to img and object, but without 
the use case of the content being external. But even so, they come with 
default semantics (the image or whatever else is being represented in 
them) whereas canvas doesn't, it has to be scripted in.

So am I missing something here? What semantics does canvas have?
