Terminology issue.

http://www.w3.org/TR/DOM-Level-3-Core/core.html#ID-667469212
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#sec-cdata-sect

...refer to <![CDATA[ ... ]]> as a CDATA section.

http://code.google.com/webstats/ refers to script and style elements as CDATA
blocks.

To avoid confusion I'd suggest renaming the CDATA block state to CDATA section
state.
