I like that idea although I'm not sure how we would handle resizing of drawing surface.  What's the expectation then? 

I say match the 2d canvas: when the canvas is resized it gets cleared.  If either dimension increased in size due to the resize an implementation would need to clear the new portions of the buffer anyway.
