Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization:

length greater than 0 in the sequence with a text node whose string
value is equal to the string. Remove any zero-length string from the

     Thank you for this comment.  The XSL and XML Query Working Groups 
discussed your comment, and noted that the following text was added to 
Section 7.7.1 of the July 23 draft the Data Model specification [2]:

adjacent are combined into a single Text Node. If the resulting Text Node 
is empty, it is never placed among the children of its parent, it is 
simply discarded.

     The working groups decided that this text in Data Model makes the 
change that you recommended no longer necessary.

     As you were present when this decision was made, I will assume the 
response is acceptable to you.
