Ideally we can find a solution that we can implement now but that we know
_will_ be compatible with #31863.
On second thought I _think_ the resulting API should not be a direct
conversion from QImage/QPixmap to HTMLImageElement, as they are not
equivalent. The latter has a lot more attributes to specific that are not part
In fact this reminds me very much of the problem of using generated content as
backgrounds and for images:
Alternatively, would it make sense to put this into the Canvas API?
Either way I would like to find an _explicit_ API that we can document, which
might mean extending one of the .idl files.
