I like David's suggestion of "copy-text". It avoids the misleading implication
that elements are "stringified." I had to read the description before realizing
that it's just the normal default behavior. It also distinguishes itself nicely
from "copy" (which applies to elements too).

Similarly, "discard-text" seems more appropriate, to avoid the implication that
elements are discarded. Again, I found "discard" by itself misleading.

Yes, the distinction applies to attributes too (and simple values), but those
are never processed implicitly, so it seems less important to make them
explicit in the name.
