It seems premature to conduct a survey if the Working Group is so unsure
what to ask. I also cannot usefully answer the current phrasing. Picking
a character 'such as "^"' would be a bad idea if "Shadow DOM" features
use it for other purposes, and if they don't, I would not want my answer
to be misinterpreted as supporting "!" through the backdoor ("such as").
