It is the default setting because that makes the most sense for the vast majority of content. The only CSS property that applies to all elements by default (when no CSS properties are in your CSS file for an element) is display:inline. Everything else is optional and must be added.
So, for elements where content is significant and you wish to display white-space in Tags On or Normal view simply set the appropriate CSS property for that element when you create your customization files.
