Oliver has proposed the first move in abstracting WebKit's canvas 
implementation as part of his putImageData patch:


The strategy involves splitting functions out into 
CanvasRenderingContext2DCG, CanvasRenderingContext2DCairo, and possibly 
moving other parts into the respective GraphicsContext platform 

I know others have also considered abstracting the canvas but no other 
approaches have yet been proposed, so I thought I'd give a heads up on 
the list.

If you're planning a different way to split canvas, now is a good time 
to propose it -- silence is acceptance.
