I mean if you are going to put in all this work on canvas-svg integration I would try to get some buy in on the approach to start. This is why I have avoided prototyping hit testing in canvas. Frankly, the hit testing is not terribly hard to do but like you I have a lot of demands on my time.

If this mailing list was not so toxic I suspect there would be a broader, more productive discussion.  That said, I'm confident that Doug's proposal will be given due consideration by the proper people at the proper time.

echo: I think many of us at Apple are somewhat put off by the size of, and degree of heat in, this thread, also, and are standing back somewhat reticent to come any closer. It's hard to keep up; it's hard to discern what the use cases, problems, and proposals are, and how well they match; and it's hard to winnow the substance from the tenor of the discussion. Alas.
