The XSLT 1.0 specification does allow indent="yes" to insert white space
in the middle of an empty element, and in my view this is a bug.

The XSLT 2.0 serialization specification fixes this, it adds the
constraint: "Whitespace may only be added adjacent to an element node,
that is, immediately before a start tag or immediately after an end
