Some generic XML editors (e.g. oXygen) take liberties with  
reformatting whitespace by default. When whitespace is significant,  
the reformatting can be turned off using the xml:space='preserve'  

Since this editor artifact is harmless in browsers and useful in  
editors, it would be nice if the spec made it conforming at least on  
the <pre> element in XHTML5.
