I don't see how text node slicing or inline elements affect 
TextPositionSelector, as the text MUST be normalized. The use case can
 be fulfilled _without_ the additional XPath selector. The selector 
makes it significantly more likely to be accurate, without adding 
significant complexity.  By specifying as a separate selector, it 
means we can alternatively use CssSelector to find the block. What 
does the proposal add, such that as a working group, we can evaluate 
the complexity of the proposal compared to the added value.
