You certainly can subclass Text, but CharacterData does not have an __init__()
either (else Text would inherit it). Your subclass will need to either
initialize the .data and .ownerDocument attributes in the __init__(), or
you'll need to initalize them after construction.
I've added a comment to the source since this question comes up so frequently.
