A few comments:

[1] I had to Google PF Working Group. So many new acronyms to learn!

[2] I'm a bit wary of custom elements. I recall many of us spent years
developing vocabularies which consisted entirely of custom elements,
and yet found many benefits in switching to plain HTML. Would this
make validation more difficult? Is EPUB ready for new elements? Are we
now assuming javascript support is universal, even though that's not
the case in the ebook world right now? I would also argue that
anything defined in the same spec as shadow-dom probably shouldn't be
called "simple" :)
