I agree it could be better explained. The g element is to act as a
single root of the shadow tree (and a place to store properties that
apply to the entire shadow tree). Consider for example if the template
had two or more elements rather than just one - we want them all to be
in the same shadow tree.

The spec should clarify where the g comes from.
