I think it is worth worrying about, but I don't think it's worth holding up a minimal v1 of Custom Elements for. The way to get agreement among all parties is to do less. And then take baby steps from. The way I look at this is that currently you have nothing, since only Chrome ships this. There's a chance to get three more browsers if you make some concessions on the warts. And then hopefully we can iterate from there in a more cooperative fashion. (The thread Steve shared about ARIA seemed like an equivalent effort by the way, to expose some of the semantics of native elements through simple attributes.) -- https://annevankesteren.nl/
