Let's explore your answer then. So if I have a W3C XML Document Object Model (DOM) implementation containing the XML 

 <foo> bar <![CDATA[ baz ]]> quux </foo>

and query it with the following XPath 


I should get back a single text node containing "bar baz quux". So a few questions from an application programmer 

1.) Is this text node a DOM text node or some DOM incompatible XPath node?

2.) Does this node  have a parent? If so is its parent a DOM node? If so who are its children and is the returned node one of its children? 

Based on your answers to these questions I may have one or two more.
