<para>The result of this step is an XML document that contains the
Unicode characters that are the characters that result from escaping
the input. It is not encoded characters in a serialized octet stream,
therefore, the serialization options related to encoding characters
(<option>byte-order-mark</option>, <option>encoding</option>, and
<option>normalization-form</option>) do not apply. They are omitted
From the standard serialization options on this step.</para>

I think cdata-section-elements does apply.
