I didn't actually propose an error condition and I'll note that your  
setPriority() proposal didn't handle errors either. E.g. what happens when  
I pass 20 as argument?

I think easiest would be to just ignore the setting as e.g. lineCap and  
lineJoin on the canvas 2D API do. Then errors are gracefully handled and  
by checking what priority is after setting you can see whether the  
implementation supports the feature.
