    Using the Kendo UI Angular 2 Beta with a project using NG Upgrade causes the following error -

    Only selectors matching element names are supported, got: [kendoGridColGroup]

    According to the Angular 2 team using attribute selectors in components is considered an anti-pattern and should be avoided which is why they added this hardblock check in the NG Upgrade bootstrapper (They are removing this as it is obviously causing issues with 3rd party libraries).  Are the Kendo team aware they should be avoiding attribute selectors?  Might be something they should discuss with the Angular team in case they start blocking this in the regular Bootstrapper as well.
