The Turtle editor's draft says that WS is needed to prevent mis-recognition of 
tokens, but doesn't explicitly define a token.

If the parsing Turtle depends on tokenizing, then there needs to be an 
explicit definition of what a token is, and, further, what mis-recognizing a 
token means.

For example, is

@prefixprefix:<foo>.

a valid Turtle statement?

Things would get even worse if the @ was allowed to be dropped, which is a 
good reason to vote against allowing dropping of @.
