The main use case for this step is the RSS description element (which is
what I
included in my example.  Doing the above does allow handling the
RSS description element.

I could see having the step work in two ways:

  * Given a match pattern via an option called 'match', it will
    escape particular elements (e.g. the RSS description element).
  * If that match pattern is omitted, you get the whole escaped
    document wrapped in a c:result element as you've demonstrated
    above.
