The outcome of that was basically that the WebKit folks wanted innerText 
to be some sort of complicated prettyprinting thing (which is nothing 
like the spec linked above) while Gecko was not all that interested in 
implementing a complicated prettyprinting thing that wouldn't even be 
compatible with other browsers' complicated prettyprinting things.

innerText is not particularly interoperable even across UAs that 
implement it, last I checked....
