I assume you meant "before setting the attribute"?  I think working 
around this in parsers is not a huge deal, honestly.  There are lots of 
other elements that have weird "set once" attributes and bizarre 
interactions with special-casing the element until all parser-created 
attributes are set already.

How is this different from x-mywidget inheriting from that HTML element?

Other than that, the summary looks about right.
