RE: security model of Web Components, etc. - joint work with WebAppSec?

As I mentioned in my introductory message, I am specifically interested in the security model of components loaded cross-origin - do they get complete control of the application / DOM into which they are loaded?  Does an application have any ability to restrict or explicitly pass capabilities to a cross-origin component?
