OK, I'm getting the feeling that it's probably best to implement a 
proper HTML Canvas rendering engine (Athens) first and build a 
Morphic(-like) framework (e.g. the morphs from Cuis) on top of that 
afterwards. Having a good architecture is more important to me than 
getting results as fast as possible.
