Certainly XHTML is a pathological example of something you'd never use the
option with.

What I was saying on the call was that even for something I'm intimately
familiar with like SAML, it's a stretch to say that it's *never* significant
inside element content. But it usually isn't, and this is something one
could imagine flipping on by default and letting people that really need to
do something weird turn off.
