1. Yes.  You get a *significant* blow-up for many documents.  The Web
server didn't want to assume you would only generate small documents.

2. The semantics of spaces in XML are rather tricky, and the server
didn't want to introduce errors (since pretty-printing fundamentally
is about introducing spaces).
