Perhaps they did not understand the nature of CDATA, i.e., it's
something that no processor should *ever* need to give *any* special
handling beyond possibly a simple "lookup".

Isn't Unicode supposed to correspond to CDATA in the SGML/XML world?

Don't these standards committees read the materials from other closely
related standards committees?
