I'd like to see the canvas 2d spec hosted on the hg repositories that 
some other specs are now on.
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg 
<http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/Overview.html>

Hg is easier to manage than cvs. Given the current fork in WHATWG and 
W3C specs, it's a good time to move onto it.

I further suggest following the domcore spec's templating style, in 
2dcontext:
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/file/32037d398a47
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/32037d398a47/Overview.src.html

Note the compiled version for w3c consumption:
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/Overview.html

And the compiled version for whatwg consumption:
http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/domcore/raw-file/tip/dom-core.html


As an aside- note that the HTML Canvas element specification from the 
WHATWG continues to ban interactive elements such as <select> from being 
present in the canvas subtree. This exception is not presented in the 
W3C specifications, thankfully.

That specification will likely change, once additional vendors complete 
their support of the Canvas subtree. This working group has not 
encountered any vendors requesting that elements in the subtree be 
limited, apart from a short examination as to whether or not the 
<iframe> tag should be allowed within the subtree. It was agreed that it 
can be allowed, that the subtree poses no additional considerations as 
to DOM appendChild as an HTMLElement
