[OpenStack-I18n] formatted source text

I guess everyone translating has seen this,
    sometimes there's source text formatted
    by line breaks and even spaces at the
    beginning of lines which finally forces
    the translator to keep this format, else
    Zanata wouldn't allow to save it.

For an example, see above :-)

I think this formatting is rather bad and shouldn't happen. Text should be 
either continuous or it needs to be split to go into multiple strings.

Are there any reasons where as such formatted text is justified, translator 
should leave it as it is?

Or shall we rather rather flag this through a bug, or even create patches to 
change it?
