No, this is not correct. It's the exact opposite :) In this compromise proposal, the browser isn't calling any of the constructors. Arv pointed out that since the invention of [[Create]] override, we don't really need them anyway -- they never do anything useful for existing HTML elements. For your custom elements, I can totally see your library/framework having a convention of calling the super constructor. I did confuse matters but not putting in the invocation of the HTMLButtonElement.call. :DG<
