Re: [webcomponents] Auto-creating shadow DOM for custom elements

Are they appreciatively more powerful then just building Angular
directives though?

Do they enable any functionality that you could not access without the
custom elements spec?

It looks like syntactic sugar for a dom tree to me (this dom tree is
aliased by this element name),
I like it but we can achieve that right now without a new spec.
