This is to enable the remote 2D canvas functionality to ride the trains once any blockers are resolved.

According to our Firefox Trello, this is now targeting 72 so untracking for 71.

With the latest changes things are looking good, but it's probably too soon to to be sure.

We could get those uplifted to 79 and turn this on for the rest of Beta and Release, but we don't actually get security benefits until all of the graphics device code is out of content, so I think leaving this until 80 makes sense.
There is a performance win (at least on some benchmarks), but that doesn't seem like enough of an argument for uplift given our 4 weeks cycles.

The fix for bug 1656774 and bug 1654477 will be in Fx83, where remote Canvas is enabled on early beta. If that looks good, it will roll out in Firefox 84.
