I agree that that would have probably have been a better design,
especially in light of the other overloaded methods on this interface.
However, the Canvas API in the WHATWG spec was originally a specification
of the Canvas API implemented in Safari, which has since shipped, and as
such I'm afraid we can't change the method names.
