Comment:
outerHTML should probably merge with adjacent text nodes if applicable.  IE
seems to do this to some extent, and WebKit just changed to do it:
<https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=52686> This test shows behavior for
outerText and outerHTML:
<http://software.hixie.ch/utilities/js/live-dom-viewer/saved/971> (Opera never
merges, IE9 merges for outerText and partially merges for outerHTML, WebKit
now fully merges for both, Gecko doesn't implement either)
