I think this  provides the focus Andrew. Nearer to 98% of users
of MSXML will not appreciate the finer points of document load options,
simply using a tool that MS provides. 
We are repeatedly told that space is preserved within xsl:text elements.
We use it like that and expect certain outcomes.
 I do think your/Mikes finer points should be taken to W3C, but for your
 customers, the choice should be compliance with their expectations.
