Hmm...  <canvas> is certainly not block-level by default.  Do you mean 
that in practice it's always styled as display:block in cases like this?

That's really hard to do once it's shipping, because then there will be 
people who put it on the wrong elements and depend on it not working 
there, if history is any guide.

As long as the block-level decision was a conscious one, I'm not going 
to argue with it; I just don't have the context to do so intelligently.  ;)
