There is experimental support for this in Gecko at the moment via the 
boolean mozImageSmoothingEnabled property on the 2d context.  At the 
time this was added there was talk about getting more feedback from this 
group; not sure whether that ever happened.

I would be curious to know whether this property solves your use cases.

I do think we should add some capabilities to at least force 
nearest-neighbor interpolation; this is a commonly requested feature.
