Why not?  How else does one bypass the character mapping in selective cases,
except by using disable-output-escaping="yes", which is depreciated.  

(As a side note, the serialization spec does not seem to actually support
disable-output-escaping.  Is this a problem?)

Some History:
In http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xsl-wg/2004Jul/0022 the minutes state:

> creation of CDATA sections.  ...

But then in
Henry does not seem to follow up on this.
