The XSLT engine has no information about whether CDATA was used so when
it linearises the tree it just does whatever it does, it has to quote <
somehow, but it is free to use cdtat sections or numeric or entity
references. This is exactly the same as using ' or " around attribute
values, the XSLT engine can not preserve those either: it will most
likely always use ".

What you can do is tell the XSLT engine to always use CDATA sections for
those elements add cdata-section-elements="value" to the xslt
