I should be getting ready
for work but I just noticed the following quote on
Leche as the Quote of the Day.
when you nest one XML
document inside another, you should nest it
directly, without using CDATA. XML is
specifically designed to allow such nesting.
CDATA is saying "the angle brackets in here may
look like markup, but they aren't". So if they
are markup, why put them in CDATA?

Michael Kay's claim is true in the general case
but to extrapolate and say that XML is
specifically designed to allow such nesting
bogus because it explicitly prevents this.
More below on nesting XML documents, XQuery in SQL
Server and an update on RSS Bandit.
