I know we should not be driven by implementation needs;
but I do concur with Julia's observation that <text> inside
a <p> as well as at the root of the document is pretty weird,
and note that it causes a lot of trouble with implementation in
languages like XSLT.
I think the idea of an <innerText> is great, personally.
The deist use of <text> _passim_ is elegant, but confusing
