Thank you.  That's the point.  Why inconvenience users unnecessarily?

Not adding (or removing if added) trailing whitespace is the kind of thing that
computers are good at.  And the kind of thing that users should not be bothered

Pretty amazing that two of the main Emacs developers take the attitude that this
should be an individual user problem, not just a problem that the code should
simply obviate.

You did the right thing.  Too bad if your request falls on deaf ears.
