This discussion happened quite some time ago,
and the result seems pretty well foretold in the discussion
about the adom CP:

found via: http://www.google.com/search?q=canvas+adom+attribute

"JC: I am saying that the value should always be true
... Why does the user care if it an exact replica or an alternative"

In this event, adom, it appears was proposed to toggle between
"fallback content" and "alternate content".

Through time, these converged as the "canvas subtree", as James Craig 
as HTML5 defines keyboard accessibility (focus) on non-visible elements.

Those minutes pretty well cover the discussion.
Several people were requesting an "adom" attribute, to be used in automated
conformance checking, JC stated it was unnecessary, and possibly harmful.

I agree with his view.

Given the representation of vendors in those minutes, I'd like to hear
from both James Craig and David Bolter what obstacles have stood
in the way of implementing the canvas subtree, given that it is
already described/inherited through the HTML5 focus model.
