I agree since whitespace outside YANG strings is insignificant.

Lets raise this to the next level. What about the following?

   D1. description "A server.";
   D2. description "A server.";  // not very descriptive

   E1. description "A server.";  // not	very descriptive
   E2. // not very descriptive
       description "A server.";
