Thanks for pointing out that my assumption was unfounded. I am
downloading one of the data sets right now.

1. A wants to demonstrate how technology X can do Y.
2. B: „because A wants to demonstrate how X does Y, we need X to do Y“.

reduces to:

3. “X should do Y because someone wants to show how X can do Y.”

Am I misunderstanding the argument by a large margin?

?Btw, I have actually read some of your posts regarding <canvas>
accessability and am aware you list quite a lot of arguments.)
