I object to having <canvas> in HTML 5. There is no vehicle to apply
accessibility semantics to the markup - unlike SVG.

Dan, I think Maciej's point is that the survey doesn't distinguish between:
"I want canvas in HTML5, and I believe it's already covered by the charter"
"I want canvas in HTML5, but we need to recharter to cover it"
"I don't want canvas in HTML5 (we should charter a different WG to do it)"
"I don't want canvas in HTML5 (go away)"

The latest survey still doesn't (particularly, the difference between the
first two is significant).

Maciej, does that echo your concern?

Several people said that including the possible charter
impact in this question was unhelpful; I'm persuaded,
so I moved it to a separate tactics survey, which also
discusses a possible supplementary tutorial document,
a task force, etc...


I may continue to tweak them today, so if the exact wording
matters to you, check again later in the week.

Perhaps it's best to consider all surveys subject to
change on the first day...
