Apparently the actual problem here is that every time you call
element.childNodes, you get a new NodeList. 

So, the following will not work:

element.childNodes.foo = 1;
alert(element.childNodes.foo); //undefined

But, this does work:

var e = element.childNodes;
e.foo = 1;

Obviously the severity of this is significantly less now, since the alternate
method is acceptable.  Though it would be ideal if two immediate requests to
element.childNodes returned the same list.
