I don't think that could be avoided (note that HTML5 also has two
definitions of whitespace). However, I've moved it to the "Character
Definitions" section and called it "Unicode white space characters":

[[
The Unicode white space characters are are [Unicode] code points
marked in the [Unicode] specification (version 5.0.0) with the
property "White_Space".
]]

I tried to make it more consistent with the previous algorithm. Please
let me know if it is ok now. If not, please feel free to suggest
better wording.
