Status: Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: The term "child" is used in the HTML spec in its regular computer
science sense. I've no idea if that's the same as what XPath does, but it is
consistent with usage in the DOM specs, the CSS specs, and Wikipedia's various
pages on related topics.

Since the word "direct" may be the source of this confusion, I've removed that
word where it was redundant.
