CDATA sections are purely syntactical constructs used to facilitate  
escaping where need be. I don't see how they could possibly imply  
differences in content model or best practices since they cannot be  
differentiated from text at the CM level, and since for the latter it  
really is up to the author to figure out what she likes. Both are  
correct, both are examples of what can be used.
