A custom element can extend another custom element (section 5.2). For each
extendee, there must be an opportunity to create a shadow root.

This requirement seems omitted from the custom element instantiation algorithm
in section 4.

--- Comment #1 from Scott Miles <sjmiles@chromium.org> 2012-08-29 00:40:53 UTC ---
Recursive shadow-dom creation requires information about the extendee.

The section 4 algorithm takes only 'prototype' and 'template' inputs and it's
difficult to infer the extendee name from that input (it would require
searching the custom element registry for matching prototypes).

For our polyfill implementation we attached 'extendsName' to 'prototype' to get
around this problem.
