I'm not talking about the _initial_ accessibility, I'm talking about the 
state of the art of <object> and <img>, vs the state of the art of 
<canvas>. The <object> and <img> elements have a worse accessibility story 
(essentially just fallback for <object>, and only text fallback with an 
off-page link for <img>) than <canvas> (which has the same full-DOM 
fallback as <object> and the off-page link features of ARIA, as well as an 
API for handling focus and magnification for ATs).
