I think it should be rendered much like the content of an object  
element, except that it should be reserved for input tools that  
produce xml markup (crude text editors, WYSIWYG editors - whatever).

I don't think so. If the content  is validated by the browser before  
it is sent back to the server, manual insertion etc. will have to  
occur beneath the browser - at HTTP protocol level. And we have to  
trust what's happening there don't we?
