I agree. If you're going to have one then why not both. If you are going
to do away with CDATA/RCDATA elements, then you have to have CDATA/RCDATA
I still prefer the element variety since they are much easier for people
to use and I'd prefer to not even have to address marked sections at all.
Don't use 'em now (in instances), don't want to in the future. Just don't
want to have people sticking in CDATA/RCDATA everywhere they feel like.
I can control this with elements, not with marked sections. Since I'm
beginning to see XML as a down-translation more and more, however, I find
I'm less interested in arguing this point.
TEMP should go away.
