If you look at the commit message for 001, you can see the following:

Does that page clear things up for you?

I did a bit more googling and found
https://dev.w3.org/html5/html-polyglot/html-polyglot.html#bib-HTML5
which mentions CDATA:

In other words, CDATA allows you to keep XML comparability, but now
breaks strict HTML comparability. IMO the latter is much more important
for an org-html export.
