Then you will be using something other than XML, and good luck getting
any application to accept it.  The string '<![' can only be followed
by 'CDATA' in a document instance, and there are no ifs, ands, or buts
about it.

The use of notation names for marked sections has been proposed by
others, and may be included in a future revision of XML if the WG
concurs.  But right now, you will have to use a notation attribute.
