Thanks, this is being helpful, can we keep going:

So if I bind a bit of script to an on_hover event wrt an element whose
rendering has been re-ordered with respect to the rendering of its
siblings, the script will have no access to the new ordering, or to
any constructed content?  The appearance of "this.shadowTree" in the
example in the introduction to the current WD suggest otherwise, that
is, that XBL2 should be diagrammed as

 XBL2:
   Original DOM -> XBL2 -> Shadow DOM
