Re: CDATA sections in W3C XML Infoset

Though this is good advice, it's not actually required for Infoset
conformance.  A spec is free to throw away anything it likes from the
standard Infoset; the key point is that it should document it:

 - say what you use from the basic Infoset
 - say what you do with those things you don't use (eg pass them
   through, throw them away)
 - say what, if anything, you need that isn't in the basic Infoset

You could, for example, throw away comments provided you say so.
