The RelaxNG and XSD schemas are also updated at http://www.w3.org/Math/RelaxNG/ and http://www.w3.org/Math/XMLSchema/ These changes mean that the file <math xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML" > <mo lspace=".pt"/> <mo lspace="pt"/> <mpadded width=".pt"><mo>+</mo></mpadded> <mpadded width="pt"><mo>+</mo></mpadded> </math> which was previously reported as valid is now reported as invalid, which matches the prose description of the syntax of these attributes given in the spec.
