I don't think the changes in r7023 directly conflict with your proposal.
The context object has an implicit current path and exposes several
"Path-y" methods which act on the current path. If hit testing methods
are defined in an interface implemented by both the context object and
by Path objects, then your implementation could ship those methods only
on the context object if it doesn't ship an exposed Path object.

Adding an exposed Path object to the <canvas> 2D Context API has come up
several times in this Working Group over a long period of time.
