If new modern, faster, but opaque graphics system is implemented, then 
it does not have to replace the existing, fully accessible one, it can 
just complement it (being available via a specific Canvas subclass, and 
able to deliver a Form on demand). There is no need to have an 
opposition here. Just as we have Morphic *and* MVC, we can have BitBlt 
*and* a bridge to an opaque backend for people interested in that kind 
of performance.

As for me, I am interested in both.
