BTW, I suspect that the approach of talking directly to modern
browsers' low-level APIs for imaging (canvas, etc) will outperform any
abstracted toolkits like Dojo.

I mention this because performance _is_ critical for this -- the main
goal is that it works on the XO, where performance is not a given.,
and not trivial. If you have an XO, compare the performance of Mihai's
Paintweb (which uses canvas, but is not optimised) on it vs your
normal computer.
