Great. Just let me know when you've eradicated the other frameworks that have popped up in its place, and a plan for keeping developers working on their own from repeating the same mistake, despite its obvious allure, and we'll just go home. Until you have a workable plan for that, fix canvas accessibility.

Note that Bespin has abandoned <canvas> (by being merged into another
non-<canvas>-using project). I think Bespin can be taken as an example
of using <canvas> being "doing it wrong" and the solution being not
using <canvas>.
