No!

The only reason you 'need' those leading and trailing spaces is *because*
you've put some bogus quotes into the property value. Otherwise Subversion
thinks you are asking it to activate keywords named $"Id$ and $Author"$,
which of course do not exist.
If you add the spaces, then you have a request to activate $"$, $Id$,
$Author$ and $"$ again - which does activate $Id$ and $Author$ as you
intended, but does so in a rather messy way.
