You have to decide several things:

- Do you want this to work in environments where scripting is disabled, or 
do you only want this to work when your scripting library is active?

- Do you want it to be easy to take existing HTML and add widgets made 
with your library?

- Do you want it to be easy to take documents that use your library and 
easily remove the use of your library?

- Does it need to work in old browsers, or only new ones?

The answers to these questions would help find answers to your questions.
