I don’t see that as a clean solution at all.  Web developers still have to learn the inherited model class

So, instead of:

	<ARTICLE model=“myArticleData”>

You’re asking web developers to do something like:

	var proto = Object.create(HTMLArticleElement.prototype, {   // some type of initial element definition 
 	       model: {
   	         get: function() { …  },  
   	         set: function() { …  }, 
	proto.createdCallback = function(model) {	// now we have to attach an event listener to the model
		model.addEventListener(‘change’, function(e) {
			e.target.model.set( model )
	var xArticle = document.registerElement(‘x-article', {     // now register the element
 		prototype: proto, 
		extends: ‘article'

	<ARTICLE is=“X-ARTICLE” model=“myArticleData">   // and then use a different name

(And this is the simplified version...)
