Re: [webcomponents]: Of weird script elements and Benadryl

@Erik - I think the real irony here, is that people probably will be using
an HTMLElement base quite often that simply adds new methods, scoped
styles, and a template - and they will come to loath the unnecessary
boilerplate (which also makes imperative library wrapping painful). I guess
this harkens back to my distaste for dropping an unnecessary cognitive ACME
anvil on developers who don't want to chase Roadrunner in the first place.

Meep Meep!
