Figuring out the ElementQualifier is the biggest pain point in current
XMLUnit. MultiLevelElementNameAndTextQualifier works under very
specific circumstances that are no longer true when you uncomment the
elements - since now suddenly there are more elements with nested text.
There is no built-in ElementQualifier that would be able to select the
Assertion elements you want to compare. You could write your own that
basically acted as ElementNameQualifier and only if the element name was
org.openehr.am.archetype.assertion.Assertion then dived down the tree
and compared the pattern elements' text content.
