I think the point was well made at the plenary session at TPAC that there are two aspects of Web technology: (1) tools such as APIs, Web Components, etc., that allow application authors to create their own customized features, e.g., new widgets; and (2) pre-built features for authors to use in their applications and documents, for example HTML elements.

The Web needs both, and we need to be able to make both accessible.
