This part is correct: elements being inserted have a null namespace, so they
are not treated as XHTML elements. Firefox gives the same result, of course.

It's a bit unfortunate that Web Inspector gives no indication of a problem in
this case: e.g., both xhtml:a and null:a elements are displayed as "a". Also,
XMLSerializer serializes this incorrectly (Firefox has the same problem). Filed
bug 16739 and bug 16740 for these issues; let's keep this bug focused on
tracking just #cdata-section issue.
