I'm just curious and maybe missing something, but the suggested solution is
instead of having the software package encode the & character, it's to make
the contents of the container as CDATA so that no encoding is needed?

Or was the intention of this XML package that you need to encode the data

Nope, missed that first one, but I think I understand what to try.

I would rather not make any actual changes to XMLSERVICE since it's
already used in its current form by Zend and other.

This should hopefully resolve the issue.

Richard, did you see my response?

You need to specify the cdata option to be "on" so responses will be
enclosed in a CDATA tag (character data), telling the parser not to attempt
to parse it.
