In particular, as far as I can tell Gecko taints the canvas if a tainted fill
or stroke style is actually used to paint something, not just when the style is
merely set.

There is a subtle but important (imo) issue here: if we at some point allow
CanvasPatterns that contain images and are mutable, then the "taint on draw"
approach would Just Work while the current approach would have to be changed in
some way (either to retaint all canvases that have the pattern as a style on
pattern change or to taint on draw or something).

I should also note that the property of being same-origin may not be
time-invariant when document.domain is involved; I haven't looked into what
implementations actually do there.

What are the benefits of the current model apart from it maybe being slightly
easier to define?
