As a creator of web components, I'd like to be able to have a component perform
element-type-agnostic concerns, such that it could be mixed in to any specific
tag, thus specializing the prototype for that tag instance.  

This would affect the attachedCallback, where the component author would need
to be given a tag-instance prototype, ideally already prepared for doing mixins
on, and might indicate some fine-tuning of element registration, to support the
late assignment of prototype to tag instance.  I imagine non-mixin custom tags
would have a largely unchanged lifecycle, not least for API compatibility.

Ideally, multiple is= values would allow multiple mixins, each overlaying the
prototype chain defined by the attachedCallback from the prior mixin.
