VueJS : passing DOM element to component props

Just a quick exemple on how to pass a DOM elements into properties of a VueJS component (because I couldn't find that info anywhere apparently !) :

export default {  
  props: {
    myDomSelectorOrElement : {
      type: [String, Element],
      default: null
    },
  },
  data() {
    return {
    }
  }
}

I thought the proper type would have been object because a typeof someDomElement outputs object. But for some reasons the type Element seems to work !
