That's unfortunate because text can often be an important part of an
image. Consider a graph or chart generated from a table of data
elsewhere in the page, it's important to correctly label the axis and
for such labels to remain in the image when it's exported to PNG (or any
other image format).
Could this feature be considered for a future revision of the spec, if
it's not going to make it into this one?
