work on RCC (replaced by sXBL) a few years ago. We wanted to provide
the highest possible level of semantics and accessibility in the 
and use SVG as a display/interaction layer.

This is possible with <canvas> as well, but it is still the case that
half of the model is inaccessible and semantically void (and to continue
the rant, the <canvas> api doesn't really allow you to work out which

a dirty-region algorithm in each document, or redraw everything
