5.3 Boundary-space Declaration

"The xmlspace declaration"

"is not specified formally as the Formal Semantics is defined on the Core
    No, *inference rules* are defined on the Core language. The Formal
    Semantics (which includes normalization!) *is* defined on the full
    XQuery syntax.
    So one could imagine normalization rules that deal with preserving or
    stripping boundary space.

"the Core language, which is an abstract, not concrete, syntax
    What do you think is *not* concrete about the Core syntax? It's not as
    featureful as the full language, but I'd say it's just as concrete.

"and is typically the result of parsing phase"
    Huh? The Core syntax is the result of parsing? That certainly doesn't
    agree with the processing model.
