I don't want to introduce any more funny syntax for XML. But perhaps for
SGML 97 WG8 could make the distinction between element context and mixed
context syntactically clear.  Then a DTD-less parser and a human reader can
see where whitespace will be normalized and where it will not be.

"This is the document's content"
<IMG HREF="...">

<!-- Lots of meaningless whitespace that will be removed -->

Saro-Wiwa to the tribunal that later executed him.
