The main reason 0-sized canvases have always thrown in drawImage() is that
I couldn't work out what you would paint, nor why you'd have a zero-sized
canvas, and throwing seemed like it'd be the best way to help the author
figure out where the problem was, rather than just ignoring the call and
having the author scratch their head about why nothing was happening.
If there's cases where you would legitimately end up with zero-sized
canvases that you'd try to draw from, though, I'm happy to change it.
