https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=24288#c2

Bug 24288 reverted <shadow> as a function call behavior due to an
implementation difficulty in blink and it looks like the intent was to remove
the behavior until a reasonable implementation is found.

The spec change in bug 24288 neuters children of the <shadow> element to
preserve its use for the future, but it should also prevent distribution of
nodes into content insertion points of older shadow trees if we want to be able
to reintroduce <shadow> as a function call. Right now, the behavior is to
distribute 'left over' nodes in the distribution pool.

This can be done by bringing back "Let POOL be an empty ordered list."

https://github.com/w3c/webcomponents/commit/61745e0b40c8d609ad1070e7babc7915fca637ea

I bring this up because it seems like the intent was to eventually reintroduce
<shadow> as a function call and it looks like people are interested in this
feature.
