This is exactly what the HIG is telling developers to use when
creating a message dialog. The dialog layout as specified makes use
of empty lines and the HIG suggests to use a single string with line
breaks to achieve this. In my opinion the HIG is right in this case.
With all the other statements you did, I agree.
