I don't find it surprising. I do find it inconvenient when I have to
work with tools that insist on turning my markup into escaped characters
and stuffing it into an XML documents.
I guess the nearest comparison I can find is a broken parser that
insisted on wrapping all external entities in CDATA sections since heck,
they might contain angle brackets.

I'm actually writing one, and this kind of case is exactly the kind of
situation it should help solve:
My original point in this thread was simply that these kinds of problems
can be created by supposedly data-oriented applications just as easily
as by document-oriented power markup creators.
Ring around the content, a pocket full of brackets
Errors, errors, all fall down!
