I know of existing implementations that are already implementing the
indentation rules this way i.e. in the less restrictive fashion. I think the
intent of the specification was that indentation should not ever add
significant whitespace and this particular rule is a bit of an overkill for
that. Therefore, my suggestion is to treat it as an erratum.

Existing implementations will indeed "break" in the sense that they will fail
conformance test even though they are doing the right thing i.e. never adding
significant whitespace.

For these reasons, I'd suggest not waiting until 1.1.
