I think Shaver's feedback still applies: on any device with a GPU, we can
optimize canvas and/or rendering enough that scaling images is no problem on
the main thread. So this API would have a short useful lifetime ... possibly
negative.

Coming thread full circle, I now think there are good use cases for
off-main-thread canvas, in particular with WebGL, but I guess that deserves
its own thread again :-).
