There is many software which is using expat, but there is also lots of 
software which has its own simple parsers.
* I have my own XML parser in many projects
* The Tigase and gloox have their own lightweight XML parsers
* Lots of mobile clients have their own parsers

Of course it may be possible to replace this parsers with feature 
complete XML parsers or add CDATA to them if it doesnt exists already.
But there are reasons why the developers wrote their own parsers.

Today we talk about CDATA, hey but what is coming next?
