The one place I use <canvas debug='true'> is when I'm playing around in
Laszlo explorer, or in the documentation. I like the flexibility of
just pasting in a bit of source and playing with it, without ever having
to make any files. In that universe it's very handy to be able to
specify debug=true. For any production work I do of course I just use
the parameter in the URL.
I hope you can maintain this flexibility in all runtimes, but even if it
is Flash only, I still would find it useful.
