CCLayerTreeHost does not need to be refcounted.
Nor does LayerRendererChromium.

CCLayerImpl, I don't know?

RenderSurfaces? Not if we go to a RenderPass abstraction and let the LayerRenderer manage the RenderPass list. Might be less fragile, anyway.

I'm going to take a crack at CCLayerTreeHost/LayerRendererChromium.

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=68121 fixes LayerRendererChromium to not be RefCounted.

CCLayerImpl is a bit tricky since currently the TreeSynchronizer relies on the refcounting.  We can probably do this another way but it's not trivial.

RenderSurfaceChromium and CCRenderSurface are single ownership (and need a rewrite anyway).

CCLayerTreeHost is definitely possible, we just need to be careful to clear back pointers since the GraphicsLayers and LayerChromiums can very easily outlive the CCLayerTreeHost.  I'll take a crack at this one next.

After that I think we're pretty much done.
