I have no objection to the overall change from CanvasProxy to WorkerCanvas,
eg. the stuff in Kyle's original mail to the thread.  (Being able to settle
on that is one of the reasons I've tried to detach discussion for the other
use cases.)

I'd only recommend leaving out transferToImageBitmap, srcObject and
ImageBitmap.close() parts.  I do think that would be redundant with with
"present" proposal.  They can always be added later, and leaving them out
keeps the WorkerCanvas proposal itself focused.
