Is the reliance on exploiting parser wrinkles (particularly regarding separation whitespace) to get lower scores intentional, or a side effect?

My guess is yes— it's pretty in the spirit of code golfing to leverage parser tricks and inconsistencies for a better score (see https://codegolf.stackexchange.com/)
It does get a little problematic due to browser differences though, I've seen solutions that work in firefox but not chromium-based browsers (which I believe is used to check accuracy)
welp I typed too slow and now you have an official answer :D
