Hmm, I don't understand, and fear we might be talking past each other. Can you give an example where content-slot works but tag names do not? For example https://github.com/w3c/webcomponents/blob/gh-pages/proposals/Proposal-for-changes-to-manage-Shadow-DOM-content-distribution.md#proposal-part-1-syntax-for-named-insertion-points gets translated from <combo-box> <icon></icon> <dropdown> … Choices go here … </dropdown> </combo-box> Your stated sentence doesn't make much sense to me; you can have multiple elements with the same tag name. Literally, just take any example you can write <x content-slot="y"> ... </x> and replace those with <y> and </y>.
