I couldn't find a mention of the order of the color components. Since 
this may vary across device/resolution/screen/... the user agent should 
deal with the pixel format in a transparent way and expose the 
components in a consistent order. Say R,G,B,A as it is already used in 
CSS and SVG.

One more thing, it would be nice to allow to programmatically create an 
ImageData object. The width and height attribute would be mandatory at 
the instantiation. The data attribute would be filled with width * 
height * 4 zeros.
