If you use disable-output-encoding to output the start tag of an element
so that you can similarly output the end tag from another template
then basically you are missing the entire point of XSLT as a tree
transformation language, and you'd be better to work with a language
that more directly relates to the string representation of the document,
such as perl or omnimark.

there are times when you need to cope with wuoted fragments of non well
formed XML in an input document where it has uses, and also sometimes
to output entity refs or local subsets. But just using it to output
markup into the result tree is just plain wrong.
