Hope this doesn't count as cross-posting, but the following sentence from a new post on xml-dev just knocked me off my chair:
A business partner has asked that we use CDATA sections for allelement
content so they don't have to worry about handling specialcharacters.
So the Real World has spoken. Forget about all those encoding and escaping headaches we grapple with so often: use CDATA for all element content and kiss your problems goodbye!
