That is one option, but I think a context attribute (like
imageSmoothingEnabled) is also worth considering.
Perhaps image smoothing could be an enum rather than boolean with an

IMHO: Undifined behavior is a spec bug. If we have a problem with the spec,
we fix the spec, we don't just each do our own thing.
