No, what I was looking for was a way to do "Just drop these few lines of 
code into your HTML" a la Disqus, but without relying on JS. Iframes 
have always fit that (along with other benefits that "shadow DOM" is 
merely re-inventing), but only problem is iframes (still) can't 
auto-expand downwards as the internal content grows - hence, awkward 
internal scrollbars.

I haven't looked at the details, but "HTML Imports" sounds like 
something that might have been able to fit that, but according to that 
page, not only do Safari and IE not support them, but apparently Firefox 
is INTENTIONALLY not doing them because (if I understand this "polyfill" 
thing right) it seems Mozilla deliberately wants to force basic things 
like that to always rely on JS. (Just a general overall observation: I 
seriously don't understand what the hell goes on in people's minds over 
at Mozilla).
