SECTION 3.7.1.3: content

Rules 1)a) and b) appear to be in the wrong order.  If character
references are expanded prior to looking for boundary whitespace,
then character references for whitespace, such as &#x20;, 
are likely to be treated as boundary whitespace and deleted,
contrary to the explicit statement in 3.7.1.4 "Whitespace in
element content".  Implementing this as written will require
keeping track of the origin of every whitespace character coming
out of step a.
