With <canvas> a relatively stable (and implemented, actually) tag, this may be a doubtful question. However, I can't think of any answer, so here goes...
The utility is amazing: a tutorial option could then lead a user through a page or series of pages, circling/outlining an input item ("Fill in this, first!"), then circling a set of, say, radio buttons ("Now, select one of these!"), and, finally, circling the Submit button ("Congratulations! You did it!"). You can see how this would give an instant advantage in Total-Ownership-Cost to Web Applications.
