The specification uses terms "direct child" and "child" in way that's
equivalent to "child" and "descendant" terms in XPath world. Ideally this less
ambiguous terminology should be used. If not, at least terms "direct child" and
"child" should be properly defined to prevent confusion to people coming from
XML world.
