They are welcome to consider my initial reply such a request. Note that
if this was to be changed to match the Firefox behavior, then the easy
way to get the expected behavior, with unwelcome but unavoidable side-
effects in addition to being inefficient, is to use normalization APIs.
Since you want those gone in Core Web 5 DOM4 or whatever it's called at
the moment, what should authors to do reliably have text()[ . = 'abc' ]
match in a document with <y>abc</y>, as it does everywhere else? Cf.*%5C.%5Cs*%3D
