The use case as written up discusses one possible solution (using script 
element) but not others that have been proposed (and implemented in some 
places) of using an element that allows a more xml-style parsing of its 
content (cf math or svg in html5, <xml> in IE, or the "extensions like 
svg" change proposal for html5). I'm not saying one of those should be a 
preferred solution, just noticing that the use case as written isn't so 
much a use case as a discussion of the pros and cons of one possible 
solution (using script)
