Why won't you be using <xsl:copy-of select="root/text"/> ?

xsl:copy-of means
  1. create a copy of the current node in the result tree
  2. create copies of all its descendant nodes as well

This is what you want. Don't use CDATA sections. If you really wanted to use
them, you would use them in your XML, not your XSL, and you would be
the meaning of what is inside your <text> element.
