Thank - I've applied the editorial comments, but I have a question about:

My reading of the XML specification is this is for the sake of
SGML compatibility, which no-one cares about any more ...

Note SRFI-107 is not a specification of XML documents or XML parsers.
It is an *XML-like* syntax for embedding in S-expressions.  As such,
why should an "SRFI-107 processor" enforce an arbitrary constraint
that ">" must be escaped when following "]]" when not in a CDATA
section?  That's just a pointless extra rule.
