I'd like to keep the is="" construct (or better name) in the knowledge that it's a stopgap for v1, and put our energies we're currently expending debating this into styling standard elements - which is currently being considered http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-forms/

Will leaving is= (or whatever we call it) in situ create backward compatibility problems later on if/when it changes? 

That aside, concentrating efforts on styling native HTML elements makes a lot of sense.
