Can you clarify whether | is a sibling or child relationship? I am going to
assume it is a child. Are A and B elements or ShadowRoots? I assume that they
are *elements* because you mentioned C being rendered as a "child of … A" and
since ShadowRoots are themselves not rendered, A must be an element.

If those assumptions are right*, this question does not make sense to me for
two reasons:

First, whether C is matched by IPa or not is immaterial, since insertion points
match the children of host elements. C is not a child of [Ah], thus, it is not
matched by IPa.

Second, it is not possible for C to rendered as a child of [Ah] since [Ah] has
Shadow DOM with a top-level element A, hence the only thing rendered as a child
of [Ah] will be A.

My conclusion is that if C is rendered, it is rendered as the child of A.
Whether it is rendered depends on whether IPa also matches IPb (you mentioned
it matches C – whether it matches IPb in addition to that.)

I think this is confusing distribution and rendering. As far as I can see the
rules for distribution and rendering are being applied consistently.

* This doesn’t make sense to me under other plausible assumptions, so if I got
the assumptions wrong, help me out here.
