The graphics API relies on the definition of the <canvas> element, the  
<img> element, several DOM specifications already referenced by HTML5 for  
other reasons, etc. Unless someone is volunteering to split out the  
graphics API from the HTML5 proposal and draft it as a separate  
specification (and getting it right, etc.) I don't think it's worth doing.

(Same for all other "I think we better split this out" proposals.)
