This seems like something we can fix by bug triage. Both Hayato and I
periodically garden the bug tree (
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14978&hide_resolved=1
).

The process works as follows:

1) The bug tree is broken by categories of work, with each category being a
meta bug (title prefixed with [meta]).

2) As new bugs are filed, they end up at the bottom of the tree

3) Periodically, we triage these bugs at the bottom and mark them as
blocking meta bugs.

4) Those meta bugs that no longer have blocking bugs are closed as fixed.

To make it easier for you to track Mozilla-related bugs, we need to create
a meta bug, like I did a while back for custom elements:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=20684&hide_resolved=0

Here's the new bug for Shadow DOM:
https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=28491. I started added
things I know as blocking to it, please feel free to add those that I
missed.

I am sure Polymer folks will be super-happy to help. Let's continue
discussion on your bug.
