Isn't the point though, that you can insert large amounts of "textual
material" into the in-memory version of the XML as a text node and
then let the serializer deal with it as normal.

It's only when you insert that textual material into the serlized form
of the XML that you need to worry about using a cdata section...

That's right isn't it?
