Even if you knew in advance how many CDATA delimiters your data 
contained, this wouldn't work because the data itself contains markup 
(]]>) that wouldn't be passed along to the application. That is, what 
you're indicating as "data]" has an imbedded "]]>"). However, MIME allows 
for encodings of binary formats where you couldn't be predict where such 
markup (]]>) would appear.
