Firstly, it would help if you would provide links to the sections you
are quoting or to which you are referring so it's easier for other
people to see the context.

I don't understand the question.  The XSL model is that it operates on
the result of a XSLT transformation [1], and there are no CDATA sections
in an XSLT 1.0 result tree, though you can serialise the result tree as
including CDATA sections [2].  In practice, XSL processors (AFAIK) can
all read FQ XML documents instead of always requiring a XSLT
transformation as part of the process, but any CDATA sections in
serialised XML don't have to make it past the parser: CDATA sections are
for escaping markup, and the XML Rec doesn't say anything about an XML
processor reporting them [3] and they are omitted from the XML infoset
[4] (though the XML infoset itself isn't referred to in XSL 1.1).
