Nope, you didn't miss anything. If you have a look at the sources you'll
see that no escaping is done on the data.

However, you're better of using an identity TransformerHandler
transformation. There's also an utility function in Cocoon which helps
with this: org.apache.cocoon.xml.XMLUtils.serializeNodeToXML(Node node)
