A 3D canvas is just, if not more implementable than a 2D one.  Once

to add shims to make it work in IE, why not take the existing
massively supported on hundreds of millions of desktops and use that?

Could you provide more details?  Surely Flash meets all the use cases
for games developers, what's missing?
