Well, I'm not sure that Gecko is willing to implement something unless we know
that all parties are willing to go that route. For us that would just be
additional code that still doesn't produce cross-browser APIs. In fact, more
than anything it's likely to break more sites that it fixes since there's
likely a lot of pages out there that does:

if (foo.innerText) {
  <code that assumes webkit/IE behavior>
}
else {
  <code that uses something else>
}
