Byte counts lean over too far toward the "DP" view of XML.
Documents that can be edited with general editors shouldn't
contain counts of any sort.
As for escaping delimiters, this is just the dual of the current
scheme, with ">" as the representation of plaintext ">".
(IMHO the Recommendation should have made this mandatory.)
