Not according to any of the DOM specs which have made it to REC, or the WHATWG's DOM.

However, this is academic, because if 2 major vendors are exposing this on Element, then it really doesn't matter what the spec says.

> It is certainly more complicated than just define innerHTML on Element because it should also create the <text> node as SVGTextElement and not as HTMLUnknownElementPrototype.

Yes, it's obviously necessary to use the correct parsing insertion mode. By "not terribly difficult" I'm not saying it's a one-line patch, just that it's clear what is needed to be done.

Would you care to write the patch? I will not have time for at least 2 weeks.
