Someone actually did.

I haven't tried using <canvas> for UML for publishing.

 If I want to make a diagram published, I'd use the above strategies.

Trying to make UML Diagrams in the browser, current options are:
2) Image
3) HTML + CSS + Images

A UML widget for a bugzilla plugin could be useful, so long as it was
simple and quicker to use than making ascii lines.
