Practicality of HTML5 <canvas> drawing.

I'm messing around with HTML5, learning the basics and whatnot and whilst watching a video tutorial about it, I created a basic 2x2 square pattern on a canvas. This is something that, quite frankly could be done in Illustrator with five clicks of the mouse.
I was just wondering, in a professional environment, what the practicality would be for this? What's the use of a canvas other than to play a form of Etch-a-Sketch?

Load something from a webserver with AJAX & JSON, draw it on the canvas. In realtime.
