Why do you think it is not a good idea?

Readability perhaps. The p in html stands for paragraph. It is quite an attitude of smalltalkers not to use abbrevations because these are hard to read. I assume you mean that it is more to type and that it looks different to the html being created. The latter reason is a good one. The methods in the canvas are not bound to just emit a single tag. They can emit everything they like. So I would state that naming it the same wouldn't be that good because you will likely mix things that don't belong to each other.
