Hi WebKit!

I wanted to let you know that we are planning to implement the Shadow
DOM specification
in WebKit. For now, its public-facing APIs will hide behind
ENABLE(SHADOW_DOM) flag and help gather implementer and developer

Shadow DOM spec is part of the Web Components effort (see overview
here: http://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webcomponents/raw-file/tip/explainer/index.html),
and is on the standards track in the WebApps WG. Work is ongoing
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14972), with
participation from Microsoft and Mozilla. Adobe also expressed
interest in contributing.

In addition, Shadow DOM is being considered as the replacement of
similar plumbing in SVG for SVG v.Next. This particular effort is just
starting in SVG WG.

The meta bug to follow is https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63606.
