Can you provide some examples of this? I've never been able to think of a
real-world case where you'd want to treat all XML objects (elements,
attributes, text, PIs, etc) the same. That's not to say that there aren't any!
But it's just harder to be empathetic about a case that you can't really
imagine happening. It'd be really helpful to see some real-world examples of
where you'd have a method that wants to be able to receive all these objects
and treat them at least mostly equally.
