It's not clear from Shadow DOM specification should or should not form elements
in ShadowDOM be submitted durint the form submit. Spec reads
(https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/webcomponents/raw-file/tip/spec/shadow/index.html#html-forms):
'Because the form's ownerDocument is the shadow host's document, the form
submission must continue to work as specified.'. Does it mean that if the form
contains Shadow tree all form elements in the tree should be submitted when the
form is submitted? The current Shadow DOM implementation in Google Chrome does
not submit these elements. If this is a bug then I'll file a bug for the
implementation. But anyway specification should more clearly specify should or
should not form submit affect elements in shadow trees.
