The swept-wing version with wing-root mounted engines looks like a baby Valiant.

Would wing root engines have been better for engine out handling?

I've seen it written at least for the Meteor that a lot of crashes were caused by engine out handling problems.

The border to the image and the caption look like Putnam layout styles.

One major spinoff of the Canberra was of course the Martin B-57 series of aircraft. -SP
When you know you're right, go ahead.

A good idea for a STOVL Canberra can be found here
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,23842.0.html#new

I've moved it to that section, as there may be the danger, that one day it would pop up
somewhere as a "real project", because it was shown here.  ;)

The US Martin variants and projects will get an own topic. There are several threads, too...

An extremely stupid idea. One motor on wing tip goes tits up; the other throws the aircraft into an uncontrollable spin.

With regards to safety considerations, probably yes. But not uncommon for those times of enthusiasm

In regards to the original Canberra layout of a single Avon powerplant, with wing root intakes a model of this configuration is held by BAe Archives at Warton. I saw it myself when visiting around 9 years ago, and it was sat on the desk which formerly belonged to Teddy Petter, and after him Roland Beamont!
