Having dedicated DOM element (<canvas>) for drawings looks a bit strange as

Ideally getContext method should have one more parameter - layer -
so graphics could be mixed with the content of the element, drawn on top
and/or below the content.
Only as an example, Sciter allows to draw on any block element:
Samples are in /samples/graphics/*.htm
