For HTML5 canvas animations, painting speed is very significant.
Android uses a retain mode rendering approach as well; where paint
operations are recorded on a WebCore thread and painting is actually done on
the UI thread. It isn't necessarily the best approach. But I suppose it
depends the platform whether or not there is much to gain. You still need to
worry about synchronization.
