Speaking of the google-maps element, wouldn’t you like a mapbox element??

Hell. Yes.

They all have styling and behaviors that are pretty much “baked in.” I don’t think the idea is to push all style and logic into the markup, but the “standard” stuff — yes, why not?

I get what you’re saying. The problem I see with tools like these is that I feel at least they make too many assumptions, particularly about our aesthetic. What are those material buttons called Google is pushing? With the ripple effect? Yeah… I think it looks horrible. Really superficial cruft in my view.

Do I have to use the Polymer UI elements? Can I customize them? To what degree?
