[whatwg] text/html conformance checkers and CDATA

Should text/html conformance checkers treat the string '</' as the end 
of <script> and <style> as in SGML or should they look for the entire 
end tag as in tag soup?

I think conformance checkers should not allow '</' in elements whose 
content model in HTML 4 was CDATA.
