[Bug 14419] when canvas isn't supported, or for blind users, the canvas element's content should be displayed, so excluding input types like text and select is discriminatory

Tab, as I understand the situation, the content of the canvas element is
displayed as an alternative when the canvas element can not or should not be
displayed.  Forbidding an arbitrary set of elements disadvantages those who do
not have canvas support or eyesight.  What does forbidding such elements do to
prevent reimplementable of them in Canvas?  If there is a canvas application
which allows sighted people to paint a picture but people without canvas
support or eyesight to provide text instead, there is no reason to forbid that,
is there?
