That wasn't my intent. I'll look over that again. Thanks!

I just mirrored LinkStyle
(http://dev.w3.org/csswg/cssom/#the-linkstyle-interface) here. Given
that  document already has URL, you're right -- I don't need the
Component interface at all. LinkComponent could just have a content
attribute that returns Document. Also, there's no need for
sub-classing anything. Components are just documents.

Components don't directly correlate with custom elements. They are
just documents that you can load together with your document. With
things like multi-threaded parser, these are useful on their own, even
without custom elements.
