--- Comment #1 from Dimitri Glazkov <dglazkov@chromium.org> ---
It seems that having a distinction of a "private" shadow tree is a misnomer,
possibly giving the author a false hope that their shadow tree is somehow
protected from a motivated owner of the document. Unfortunately, that's not the
case -- the document can easily override and capture all shadow trees created,
thus killing the shadow author's illusion of privacy.
