My current plan is to submit the document for publication `as is`. That 
said, I do think a small part of the expanded text is a bit confusing:

[[
This specification is obsolete and has been replaced by the document at 
http://w3c.github.io/webcomponents/spec/shadow/. Do not attempt to 
implement this specification. Do not refer to this specification except 
as a historical artifact.
]]

I think this could be interpreted as meaning the spec is dead/stopped. I 
think something like the following would address this concern:

[[
This version of the specification is obsolete and has been replaced by 
the document at http://w3c.github.io/webcomponents/spec/shadow/. Do not 
attempt to implement this version of the specification. Do not refer to 
this version except as a historical artifact.
]]

Could you live with those short qualifications/clarifications?
