That can be done by the application when it receives the output
from the XML processor. And even then I would assume that it is only
really necessary to check normalization when it can affect the result
of operations performed on the data.

Now, this would change if normalization would also affect
the internal behaviour of the XML processor, but I don't think
this is the case, or am I mistaken?
