nXML mode still says this is valid XML, despite the>>>>>>.

From http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-xml-20081126/#syntax:

The right angle bracket (>) may be represented using the string " &gt; ", and MUST, for compatibility, be escaped using either " &gt; " or a character reference when it appears in the string " ]]> " in content, when that string is not marking the end of a CDATA section.

Doesn't that mean that ">" may appear in its literal form in content, when it is
not within a string "]]>" (as above)?
