Oh yes, I agree. As I think I mentioned in my pre-CR version of this thread,
nothing here stops any system building an XDM tree any way it likes from
whatever data sources it has. Perhaps incompatible wasn't the best word. What I
meant was the behaviour of stripping all white space nodes, although implemented
in a very widely used system (I use it quite a bit:-) doesn't really help the
present discussion decide any course of action as no system doing that is
implementing the infoset to XDM mapping outlined in the data model spec. If the
resulting tree meets the consistency constraints on an XDM tree (which I'm sure
it will) it's conformant behaviour but irrelevant to the discussion of this part
of the spec, surely.
