Well, everyone should add CDATA support. And I don't think that adding
CDATA isn't RFC-compliant. But even compliant changes may cause harm.

BTW, using CDATA in generating XML by ejabberd is optional now. I
think It's the best solution. If it increases performance then admins
of really big deployments could enable it themselves.
