One way this effect could be simulated is by overlaying a transparent
<img> over the top of the canvas, and appling the imagemap to that
instead. Given that it's so trivial to work around it now, are there
sites that are actually doing that, or anything else that would indicate
some level of demand for this feature? I'm not saying it's a bad idea,
I'm just trying to find out how much incentive there is for browser
vendors to implement a feature like this.
