DOM XPath module last call issue diether5 is about adding an 
XPathStringValue property to every Node which allows easy access to a 
Node's XPath string-value (since 'string-value' is not equivalent to 
'textContent').  The working group feels that it could be useful, but 
there are presently sufficient other methods for obtaining similar 
results, either requesting a single result as text, using wholeText on a 
text node, or by calling textContent on an element. It will not be added 
at this time.

See the issues list for more information at

Please let us know if you are, or are not satisfied with this resolution.
