Adding a new function would only help if we were having grammar issues
with element(), but we aren't - the implementation issues are deeper
than that.

And it looks like Houdini is taking over that use-case with Custom
Paint, which is basically an upgraded form of -webkit-canvas().  It
actually lets you respond to the size that CSS wants the picture to
be, rather than requiring you to guess at the size and then get ugly
scaling if you guessed wrong.
