Some canvas methods (drawImage, createPattern) are defined in terms of
the complete attribute ("If the image argument is an HTMLImageElement
object whose complete attribute is false, [...] then the
implementation must return without drawing anything."). Now that it
can be true when the image doesn't have any image data, what should
they do when passed such an image?
