I hate TreeWalker because it's an iterator but not an ES Iterator.
DOM is broken, legacy cruft, etc.

I'm fine with something that exposes TreeWalker's abilities to start
from a given node, but that returns an ES iterator, like Domenic says.

Given that we can overload the arguments, as you describe, I'm okay
with reusing the existing method for this.
