I have a different perspective.

If an editor changes the content when I haven't, I'd be very upset.

Different view of the same thing?

Michael called OOo an XML application.
I hate XML editors that 'make it look pretty'.
What is 'pretty' for person A is ugly for person B.
White space is significant in XML and XML isn't HTML.

I don't think the spec should support an implementation
playing around with the base XML.
