There are no other workarounds yet. You have to specify the elements for 
which you want to preserve whitespace in one of the two ways. If you 
specify them in preferences you can store the Editor / Format /XML 
preferences at project level to avoid adding all the elements for all 
the projects in the same Preserve space elements table.

We have this request already logged in our issue tracking system for a 
future version of oXygen.
