Glad to hear you think it's promising! The example is from the AMP team,
and you can see more detail at the Origin Trial results summary here:

I just replied to the comment you made yesterday on DOM issue #892. I looked
back at the F2F minutes (
to refresh my memory, and it turns out the current API was actually
(by annevk) at that meeting. I don't see any comments from you about the API
shape there, but perhaps I missed it?

In terms of API shape, can you clarify what you feel is deeply problematic
about it? I assume you're talking about the need to pass in closed shadow
roots, to enable them to be serialized. I see that your comment there
the requirement to pass in *all* shadow roots, even open ones. But the
comment on selection actually refers to just closed shadow roots also. I'm
unclear why you would want/need to pass in open shadow roots?

Yes, I've talked several times to justinfagnani about Scoped Custom Element
Registries, and he sees no problem integrating with DSD. We'll likely
just need to add an attribute that opts the shadow root out of using the
global registry, but that seems straightforward. Do you have any particular
