How is this different from:

   <[EOF]     (vs <p>)
   </[EOF]    (vs </p>)
   &[EOF]     (vs &lt;)

...?

Is the request here to change the CDATA section state to ignore one or two
trailing "["s if an EOF was seen? That seems odd. We only make EOF drop stuff
if we would otherwise always have eventually returned a non-character token yet
the end of the token had not been seen yet. In this case, first the ]]> doesn't
correspond to a token, and secondly if the next character adter "]]" is not
">", then the "]]" would be emitted as characters. So I'm not sure that what
you describe makes sense.
