Why can't bundle manifests be pretty-printed?

I've had to wade through lots of OSGi bundle manifests lately, and I have to say, they are hard for an average Joe to read.

So, I entered an enhancement request for bnd to provide a directive for pretty-printing manifests. I include an example of what I'd consider pretty-yet-still-manifest-spec-compliant.

If you've suffered my fate as well, please add a +1 comment for it (until such time as github adds back voting for issues).
