There is something that Axis is doing now that you consider broken.  A
small example of the inputs, the API's you are calling, and the desired
output would be helpful.

"preserving whitespace" generally implies that the application is involved
in producing XML.  Can I get you to take a look at the stock quote sample?
What does "preserving whitespace" mean in that example?

I would have no problem with a requirement that whenever conversion to or
from DOM is involved, the elements are to remain intact.  But without
insight into what your inputs, API's or desired output is, I can't assess
whether or not this addresses your issue.
