The difference between |text| and |textContent| being:
http://www.whatwg.org/specs/web-apps/current-work/multipage/the-button-element.html#dom-option-text

For what I've seen, Gecko, Webkit and Presto doesn't follow the spec and return
.text instead of .textContent when requesting option.value.
IE9 and IE10PP are returning .textContent when getting .value. However, it
seems that .text is submitted instead of .value which is kind of odd.

By the way, wouldn't that be easier to simply say that value IDL attribute,
when getting, should reflect the |value| of the element as explained here:
