[Bug 14562] According to the website, Canvas2D is one of the specifications that are on "last call", so here's what I'd still like to see (one graphics, two typographical, all three known irks for many people who actually use canvas): - an elliptical arc command in a

Based on comment #0, in both cases the use case is to implement a generic
