Where is the indication that this is a prophesy concerning their posterity and not to them personally? Where does it say that Canaan did not personally become a slave to Shem?

You can't use Genesis 49 as an example, as that specifically indicates that Jacob's statement is a prophesy. But there is no such indication in Genesis 9. Therefore I conclude that your claim is an eisegesis done to maintain the fiction that LMW must refer a plural.

Verses 26 and 27 here say nothing about the posterity, just the 
individuals are named. Saying that it refers to the posterity is not 
exegesis, but eisegesis, where you are adding to the text. <

Canaan did not physically became a slave to Shem. Noah prophecied 
about the posterity.
