    33IE 6/7/8 are still something like one-third of all Internet users. If we "supported" setting data on text nodes we'd just be setting ourselves up for the inevitable bug report that it doesn't work in IE 6/7/8. In contrast, it took someone **six years** to report that they couldn't set data on a text node, so it's not a critical issue for too many folks.

    5 Attaching data to text nodes cannot be done cross-browser, so it's not likely to happen until jQuery 2.0 when IE 6-9 are dropped -- assuming it works elsewhere. I'm still not convinced this is good practice; text and comment nodes are not something jQuery manipulate consistently vs. elements.

    77The "nasty workaround" you describe is exactly what we'll have to do inside jQuery to make this work, so if your concern is about performance it won't help to have us fix this soon anyway.
