Not necessarily. Also, normalize() really shouldn't be guaranteed to
merge Text nodes (though the DOM spec implies it always succeeds). 
For example, if it runs out of memory, it mightn't be able to merge
the nodes.

Anyway, my main point is that I can't see why CDATA sections add
such a burden to your processing.
