When faced with requirements to emit pseudo-markup of this sort, I prefer to think of it as a kind of meta-serialization, which can be encapsulated in templates for convenience.

Ulimately you're talking about tag-writing, as in Evan's (techniques which can be adapted fairly readily to make pseudo-HTML).

David's point that the cosmetic enhancement of getting CDATA into the output can (only) be handled on xsl:output (with a serializer that supports it) is the essential one.
