If we represent a space in markup by something in XML (never mind
whether or not it looks like a space character) that is ignored, we
_are_ losing spaces. You are confusing the payload with the file
representation. When we output stuff to XML, we need to quote it
appropriately. We do so for metacharacters like < & but it would appear
that we also need to treat spaces in certain situations different from
what we do.
