Yes, although that's probably somewhat misleading as the Chromium
contributor who volunteered to help implement those is only human and it's
a rather long list. I'll be working with him to prioritize, but it's not
like suddenly these can all happen.

Meanwhile this doesn't change the other Canvas2D-related work ongoing in
the Chromium project, so we're still keen to see some new features added to
the Canvas spec. Ian if it would help to identify items in the spec that
Chromium doesn't intend to implement (at least any time soon), we can
attempt to do so.
