If by text content you mean actual text content, then there is no  
difference whatsoever between what can be stored in an attribute value  
and the text content (as per DOM 3 textContent) of an element  at  
least not semantically.

If by text content you mean structured content, then we're talking  
about turning the preference system into an XML storage system since  
most XML constructs could appear there.

Do you mind clarifying which one it is you are wondering about?
