Looks OK to me.

I agree with adding the comment on whitespace because it makes the data 
more robust across implementations that do and do not support either of 
xsd:hexBinary xsd:base64Binary D-entailment.  As potentially significant 
sized binary blobs, the impact of supporting them is a bit different to, 
say, dates.
