But there's plenty of things which make zero sense as fallback content.
<input type=color>, for example, simply cannot be sanely implemented in

as implemented input type=color is a button that when activated pops up a
picker dialog. So the following code (as a simple example)

<canvas id="myCanvas" width="200" height="100"
style="border:1px solid #000000;"
<input type="color"" id="button">

in Firefox 30/windows when the canvas is clicked the color picker is
displayed., likewise if the the input receives focus via the keyboard and
the enter/spacebar key is pressed the picker dialog is displayed.
