It violates the backwards compatibility aims for a start, as HTML browsers
will not be able to cope with CDATA sections in arbitrary locations as
they are not general SGML processors.  Whether the specification actually
forbids general use of XML features, I need to check.

It's only when you get to XHTML 2, that you are really free to ignore
backwards compatibility.
