 Seems a reasonable approach for a GUI for new data.

 What about XML that was already indented? You couldn't strip out the 
 indenting text (unlress you had some awarenesss of the structure, such 
 as a schema) so you would get double indents or mixed indents?  Or does 
 the editor operate line-by line to know which lines are diplayed 
 indented and which use the incoming XML whitespace indentation?
