This used to be how many Web APIs worked, but over the years we've
received enormous volumes of feedback to the effect that constructor-based
APIs are way better than factory-based APIs. Is there no way we could at
least have all the canvases within a Document in Firefox use the same
backend? It would be really unfortunate to have to use factories here to
get around an implementation detail in one browser.
