The question is really whether we want an attribute that, when it
serialises the DOM, serialises things like <img alt=""> to the element's
alt text, serialises things like dir="" to embed the requisite bidi
formatting characters, etc. (Obviously we can't redefine textContent
itself, and innerText is subtly different as well.)
