Nope, if someone had <input id="Path"> previously and accessed it as just
"Path", we'll break their page because now Path is this canvas object, not
the HTMLInputElement.

Intuitively I feel like using the ID of "Path" can't be that uncommon, and
accessing ids like this was fairly common in a number of apps and code
generators I've worked on...
