I think it's meant to be literal.  See section 4.1.6.

I believe this is a bug in Gecko, caused by the fact that a leading '[' 
looks like the start of an attribute selector and Gecko not skipping to 
the matching ']' when it discovers that it's not looking at an attribute 
selector after all.  If you only have one '[' but precede it with '<!', 
Gecko will correctly skip to the matching ']'.

Another test we should add to the test suite, imo.
