Right, for many HTML features this seems problematic. Are you planning
on working on this and provide patches against
https://github.com/whatwg/html? If you think this is too much work let
me know and I'll see what I can to help. I'm trying to decrease the
backlog of HTML somewhat so this is not currently a priority for me,
but it is one of the things Mozilla considers problematic with
shipping Shadow DOM at this point.

Given that https://w3c.github.io/selection-api/ is edited by Ryosuke,
I wonder what his thoughts are. This issue must not have gotten past
the Apple team. At Mozilla we don't have a concrete proposal, it's
however something we don't think works well currently and we don't
really know how to move forward here.
