[Bug 9895] HTMLImageElement's "complete" attribute definition implies immediate image decoding


--- Comment #10 from Boris Zbarsky <bzbarsky@mit.edu> 2010-10-14 13:10:16 UTC ---
Bake in in what sense?  How is a UA throwing out the decoded image data and
having to redecode on demand different from the UA serializing its DOM to disk
to save memory (or heck, having it page out!) and having to read it in
on-demand?  Requiring synchronous decoding on drawImage if the data is not
already decoded is the only reasonable course of action unless you want to add
callbacks and significantly complicate the behavior of drawImage.

The only question is whether it's ok to report the image as complete before all
the pixel data has been decoded, right?  Seems like the proposal in comment 8
should address that.
