I don't think the fixme is addressed with this change. According to the
cited section in the spec. a node has *an* effective node type. How come
this method returns an iterator? Also the semantics of subtyping
(18.104.22.168) is not adhered to.
I know that the return value of this method is *used* to do effective
node type calculations and I am not opposed to that. However, we should
then change the names of this method (and its sister) to better reflect
what it actually does.
