3.7.1.4 says: [For the purpose of identifying boundary whitespace], characters
generated by character references such as &#x20; or by CdataSections are not
considered to be whitespace characters.

So, conceptually at least, boundary whitespace must be handled before character
references and CdataSections are expanded. Therefore, I think 3.7.1.3 would be
slightly clearer if the handling of boundary whitespace were addressed by a
point between 1a and 1b, rather than a sentence in 1c. E.g.:

    b. If the boundary-space policy in the static context is 'strip',
       boundary whitespace is identified and deleted.

(I'm pretty sure this would allow you to delete the boundary-space sentence in 1c.)
