Well, you can. The CDATA contains a string. If this string is well-formed
XML, you can turn it into a tree by parsing it. Saxon 7.1 allows you to do
this using saxon:parse(). But it still begs the question: the purpose of
CDATA is to say "the stuff in here isn't markup", so if it is markup, why
are you putting it in CDATA?
