After some major deliberation by those that be, Konami, we have some official TCG rulings!

“Xyz Materials"
Monsters that are used to Xyz Summon are called ‘Xyx Materials’, and are placed underneath the Xyz Monster, to show that they are attached to it.
Monsters that have become Xyz Materials are not treated as cards on the field.
When an Xyz Monster leaves the field, all of the Xyz Materials attached to it are sent to the Graveyard.
If an Xyz Monster is flipped face-down, or becomes controlled by the opponent, the Xyz Materials are not sent to the Graveyard. They remain attached to the Xyz Monster.

"Leaves The Field"
Some monsters have effects that activate when they ‘leave the field’. For example, these effects activate when the monster is sent to the Graveyard, or is banished, or is returned to the hand or Extra Deck. When a monster on the field is shuffled into the Main Deck, or becomes an Xyz Material, it is no longer a card on the field, so its effects that activate when it ‘leaves the field’ will not activate.”

This means cards such as Sangan will not trigger their effect when sent to the Graveyard as a Material under an XYZ, because they haven't effectively left the field, they left the material area (that doesn't actually exist on the filed)!

Vini: Clone Shell is amazing!
Jake: No it's not it's rubbish!
Vini: What are you talking about it's great with Eldrazi, Emrakul turn 5 blamo!
Jake: Don't be silly you couldn't even win a fnm with it!
Vini: Right next week I'll play Clone Shell deck then ........ and the rest is history
