It's required in XML, because if you need to have "]]>" in character
content, it has to be written "]]>" or the NCR equivalent.  MicroXML
requires all instances of ">" to be ">" for consistency.  However,
this is not true in attribute values, primarily for compatibility with
Canonical XML.  I would consider requests to change this.
