thats kind of what i'm asking, it looks like SVG has its own API already, sort of similar to canvas. are there plans to merge? can you use svg elements inwide a canvas element or will the browser not find them? are there plans for that to change? etc.

i guess a roadmap explaining the relationship between <canvas> and <svg>.. is this another xhtml2 vs html5, simultaneous development? what was wrong with SVG that required a simpler replacement (but i guess not element level interface).. 

anyways, i guess i'lll scour faqs and unsubscribe
