Nicely said. Sadly, whilst I use an XML editor that does things 'the
right way', I still have to use XSLT with lexical preservation
features to add the pointless (and potentially harmful) indentation
characters when I need to share my XML with others (to avoid their own
pretty print systems messing this up - see below).

To compound this issue, editors still don't have pretty print systems
that properly indent new-line attributes and their multi-line contents
(I'm more than happy to be corrected on this rather sweeping
statement).
