Meh, this is normal, and not hard to deal with in a parser. And since
this is standard for other tc output, it has to be dealt with anyway.

Never mind parsing reasons; it doesn't make sense to humans either :P

As a general point, I'd argue against making it harder for humans to
read the output in an attempt to make it "easier" to parse. In that
case, do a full machine-readable output (CSV, json, etc); otherwise
we'll end up with ugly output that is still hard to parse...
