  This is exactly what we did.  DOM is that tool.  You might argue that
  the default is non-conformant, but that is remedied with a single line
  of code.

Unless of course you are reading xml in a browser such as IE which
gives no API to flip that switch so you lose inter word spaces in text,
too bad. Actually I think having the white space switching in the
parser API is not runreasable, having it as the default is terribly
confusing in XSLT and not being able to turn it off in IE just about
kills XML's original use case of delivering documents to the browser to
be styled on the client.
