Since Last Call was announced and I just ran into this problem, hereby
this question:

If an image is drawn on a Canvas element, and subsequently the
javascript function cloneNode(true) is executed for that element,
should the clone include a copy of the source canvas image, or should
it show an empty space?

>From my perspective (the web author), I'd prefer to have the canvas
image included when executing (the deep) cloneNode(true), and excluded
it when using (the shallow) cloneNode(false).
