To be clear, I am NOT proposing anything involving interface changes. 
In the case I described, the DOM will see an HTMLTableElement.  There 
will be an anonymous canvas or <svg> in the shadow tree which is not 
visible from the DOM.  The discussion is just about what CSS boxes are 
created and how the component can affect that, not about interfaces or 
anything else observable from script...
