The 1.0 recommendation is not explicit about this, so I don't think you can
call this a bug in JD.xslt.

In Xalan, we decided to strip any whitespace-only text nodes as if you'd
placed an xml:space="default" attribute on the xsl:choose.  It seemed a
reasonable thing to do, rather than require users to add the attribute

However, it _is_ something the WG ought to address in an erratum, or in the
2.0 recommendation.
