So why do ve have rect? 4 lines could do it... simple enough...

Canvas is for immediate raster graphics, SVG for retain vector 
graphics.  The use is a matter of choice, canvas have been used to 
create controls, graphs, diagrams... all could use round rect. But I 
agree, that idea below is not very well thought out.
If we would go for round rect (RR), we need the obility to create RR 
paths and the ability to create each "corner" different - specify x and 
y radiuses for every "corner"
