This proposal seems worse than wormhole parsing because the interface of
the template nodes is not HTMLElement, unless we're assuming it's a
different but identical namespace?

For instance it's super weird if <img src="x"> is missing the .src property
because it's not in the HTML namespace, but suddenly when it's cloned for
instantiation it's back in the HTML namespace and has the src property.
