Hi Dmitri.

Even though we've been using "shadow" as a term in our internal development, I think it makes a bad API name, since it's vague to its purpose, and it conflicts with the existing meaning of "shadow" on the web, which is a color radiating around a visual element.

Perhaps "component" or "subtree" or "disconnectedTree" would be a better API name.
