in thread CDATA-like "literal" tags in XML-like data

$passage = \substr

Yes, that's exactly what I was trying for. I seem to recall trying to do this before, but it didn't work. Maybe I never got the syntax right, or it wasn't right on earlier versions.

As for exactly following expectations, that's the point: it's all literal until a very strict end condition is reached. The <<EOF ... \nEOF construct is "fragile" too, as is forgetting to escape out a slash in a RE. Either follow the rules or get an error when things don't match up.
