Except that there is a slight difference between a declarative element
and a programmatic one.
SVG being declarative, it has an actual DOM tree with elements and
attributes that can be affected using CSS.
The Canvas element itself can be styled with CSS ( borders, size,
outlines, background, ... ) but what is done in the CanvasContext does
not end up in the DOM tree and therefore their styling can not be
affected using CSS.
