That was my initial reaction as well. After thinking about it 
some more, I don't really have strong feelings one way or the 
other. One way or another (browser extensions, scripting, etc.) 
it'll be easy to get the raw source so I don't see any harm, and 
agree there are potential benefits in making the cleaned-up 
serialization the default shown to authors.
