I agree, I don't think it is difficult to support both, at least for the
'text' element.  The code handling the element just needs to walk the
flattened tree instead of the actual DOM tree, and listen for XBL
binding events.

My guess is that it would be similarly not difficult to handle it for
elements such as 'style', 'script', ..., but I haven't looked into that
yet so I can't be sure.

I thought my question sounded familiar!
