That's fine, and I agree with this goal. It's just that I think that it 
could be achieved more effectively if edits on the *content* (language, 
spelling and so on) are done on the author's *source* document, and 
other changes (whitespace, indentation, ...) only occur when the actual 
content is fixed. Doing both at the same time makes it needlessly hard 
to track unintended changes.
