Hi Richard,

Thanks again for clarifying on my previous point. I thought of another  
question. (Question and supporting remarks are with co-chair hat off.)

Is it intended that use of the @adom attribute is mandatory for  
conforming content? I know the draft doesn't say that it is currently,  
but I wonder if that is the intent.

Here is why I ask: If @adom is not mandatory, then it seems that  
authors who omit it probably cannot meet the current accessibility  
conformance requirements for <canvas> in the HTML5 draft. So to make  
this possible, it seems the HTML5 draft would have to change to make  
it conforming to have a non-accessible <canvas>. Is that what we want?  
On the other hand, if @adom *is* mandatory for conformance, then it  
seems like all we'd be doing is renaming the canvas tag.
