It supports the content model restrictions, which are there to avoid
authors making mistakes that harm accessibility (amongst other things).
Reasons for content model restrictions are discussed in more detail in the
introduction to the spec:
If there are specific use cases that can't be done given the current
restrictions, please let me know; we can definitely consider relaxing some
of the restrictions. (It's very hard to tighten restrictions, but
comparatively easy to relax them, which is why we start them on the strict
side rather than on the relaxed side.) So far, all the use cases that
people have brought up for things that can't be done within the current
restrictions also happen to be things that canvas is actually really bad
at doing at all. There's another non-normative section that goes into more
detail about these kinds of things:
