No, I don't think so, I think that the stylesheet should either quote the white
space while writing the attribute as XQuery and XSLT serialisers do when
writing attributes in xml or html output (the xquery text is written with
xsl:output method="text" which is why the "attribute" is not automatically
quoted here).

the stylesheet already has template for quoting characters and applies it to &
and { it just needs to do white space as well. (It would be easier in xslt2,
but it's not hard, just tedious to do it in xslt1, see bug #1285)

alternatively of course xqx:attributeConstructor could be converted to a
computed attribute constructor

If Xquery processes 
attribute attr {"a
b"}

it does automatically quote the newline in the result, so in that case the
stylesheet would not have to do anything, although the error behaviour is
slightly different in that case (duplicate direct attribute constructors are
reported statically with a different error code than duplicate attributes
generated by a computed element constructor).
