Clicking through on the issue list from reagle-01 we see
that the assumption that the lexical form is canonical is correct.

In which we read:

of this property element.

new text:
[[
The lexical space
is the union of the set of all pairs ( string, lang ) and the set of all
strings string,
for which:
+ lang is any language identifier [RFC-3066] normalized to lowercase;
+ string is well-balanced, self-contained XML element content [XML];
+ string is

+ the XML document corresponding to the pair or the string is a well-formed
XML document [XML] that also conforms to XML Namespaces [XML-NS].
