HTML Canvas 2D Context progress is stalled; time to drop features?

Background: HTML Canvas 2D Context is in Candidate Recommendation:

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2dcontext/

The plan, as of September 2014, was to have "All tests will be written 
and run by the end of the month":

 
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-canvas-api/2014JulSep/0033.html

The status, as of January 2015, is that a number of tests have yet to be 
written (search for TODO):

    https://www.w3.org/wiki/HTML/Canvas_Task_Force/CR-Test

Additionally, many of the tests that are currently written are failing.

After discussions with my co-chair (Paul Cotton) and the W3C domain lead 
(PLH), the time has come to recommend that features for which we don't 
have passing tests be deferred to HTML Canvas level 2.

I encourage everybody who would like to propose an alternate plan do so now.
