"12.5 getElementText()"

John Jansen and I were reading the specification for getElementText() and he
remembers discussing it at a face to face but can't find the minutes. Below is
what we think was agreed upon:

Get Element Text

GET /session/{session id}/element/{element id}/text

The Get Element Text command retrieves the textContent value of the given web

1. If the current top-level browsing context is no longer open, return error
with error code no such window.
2. Handle any user prompts and return its value if it is an error.
3. Let element result be the result of getting a known element by UUID
parameter element id.
4. If element result is a success, let element be element result's data.
Otherwise, return element result.
5. If element is stale, return error with error code stale element reference.
6. Let element text be the result of calling <a
on the specified element.
7. Let body be a JSON Object with the "value" memeber set to the element text.
8. Return success with data body.

What do you think?
