Canonical XML Comment (CDATA)

Hi John,

In section 2.1 there are listed the requirements for an XML
processor to be used to create a node set:

 3. replace CDATA sections with their character content

I am not sure, but I don't think this is standard behaviour of
the widespread XML parser implementations. 

Wouldn't it be better to skip this requirement and instead 
add a sencence to the explanation how to serialize Text nodes
in section 2.2?

The XPath data model also mentions CDATA sections in the 
explanation of the data model [1].
