Since no one's replied yet (at least not on-list):

You are correct; ']]>' is forbidden in element content, as it should
be.  This is cruft from SGML; the msc/mdc combination (marked section
close = ']]', markup declaration close = '>') is always recognized as
a delimiter (see Figure 3, ISO 8879).  As a result, XML mandates that
this combination always be escaped using ']]&gt;' unless it actually
closes a marked section.
