I did not see that in your commit.

Actually, I would bet that you won't find too many. Some time ago,
Manuel went through the entire book indenting stuff and adding
blank lines (how he did that I'll never know). Anyway, I don't
think there's been that many changes to it removing blank lines.

My take is that if it isn't right, fix it. If you notice something
wrong in the XML (when you're already editing the file, don't go
out of your way looking for stuff), then fix it.
