Please try to start by describing use cases and problems, instead of 
always proposing solutions to undefined problems.  Developing a good 
solution takes a lot of work, and solutions that are proposed without 
any documentation of problems, use cases and other supporting research 
are rarely accepted as-is.

There are already working solutions available for drawing graphs using 
script, <canvas> and/or SVG.
