  • a uses children for 'test'
  • div uses children for the above

Under the old terminology both div and a are "ownees" of the owner custom component.

I was trying to point out that custom components don't often use the children prop for elements nested by the owner because of their static nature. Often the component needs to render data into the fragment (much like a template) which requires a "function as child component", a render prop, or injected component.
