There is a discussion on adding outerText to the html spec.
https://github.com/whatwg/html/pull/6653/files/511057620a418bb3249ea6ae49bf5a420e8699ae

In addition to textContent in the past we added for compat reasons innerText (Bug 264412 ).
https://github.com/whatwg/compat/issues/5

outerText is being used in the wild, but I don't remember from the top of my head any compat issues related to it. I will dig.

Currently if I'm not mistaken, Chrome returns innerText for outerText.
