      For those unfamiliar with this concept it is basically encapsulation for sets of elements on a web page.

      I really don't know why this hasn't began implementation already. I believe the W3C has been kicking around recommendations for Web Components for a while now. Facebook already has a Javascript API called React.js that uses the concept of a shadow DOM and I also see various implementations of this concept springing up around the web. I would rather the 800lb gorillas get together and devised some kind of concrete starting point in their browsers before APIs get too many and too disparate.

      Shadow DOM needs to be addressed soon in some concrete way.

      Microsoft please collaborate with other industry giants so that we don't have 3 or 4 different variations of shadow DOM traversal, manipulation, query, etc. to learn.
