This is as much a note to myself as it is an attempt to make this information easier to find by others.
Seemingly still undocumented in the InDesign Scripting Guide is a setting for controlling whitespace in imported XML files.
app.xmlImportPreferences.ignoreWhitespace = true;
When trying to find this information I had found several suggestions that were close but had wrong capitalization or other very slightly off spellings. This works.
So, hopefully this helps somebody.
