I'm just trying to get my head around this pattern. In this example, does
the web page author or the custom element developer embed the input? And
who is responsible for syncing the relevant attributes across? In reality,
isn't this going to look more like

<x-checkbox checked="true">
    <input type="checkbox" checked="true">

or as a slightly contrived example,

<x-slider min="-100" max="100" value="0" step="5">
    <input type="range" min="-100" max="100" value="0" step="5">

Or does the custom element get its state from the embedded element?
