Spaces in text value of Relatorio report

Leading and trailing spaces are removed in text value of Relatorio report. It’s OK.
In addition, multiple spaces within the text are replaced by a single space. Is it right?

ODT are XML based so space are ignored in XML.
So I think relatorio should replace spaces by <text:s> when required (at the beginning, ending and when more than one space is inside the string).
Indeed it is already reported on Bug 48: Keep newlines, tab and space formatting - Relatorio tracker
