Exactly. Compare with HTML editors - if you open an HTML page in those many
"wysiwyg html editors" that exist, you can be quite sure that most of them will
change whitespace when saving again.

I don't think that's a problem given that the whitespace is used for readability only
(so good editors should have the option of making the output readable, and in the
case of ODF, the main ones do).
