For mixed content (a) the typed value and the string value consist of the same
sequence of Unicode characters, and (b) it's also equal to the concatenation of
the string-values of the descendant text nodes: so I think it's fairly obvious
that you can store things any way you like and you get exactly the same result.
It's with simple-valued content, e.g. numbers and dates, that results can vary
depending on the implementation strategy, so that's the case we want to talk
about.
