It has two major disadvantages: 1. Characters in CDATA really are normal characters in the XML definition, and the fact that they're in a CDATA section is just noise for most apps (and doesn't belong in the core DocumentHandler). 2. People who do care about CDATA sections might be unhappy to have two consecutive CDATA sections collapsed into one.
