I would strongly support allowing whitespace wherever
possible; however, unlike Krzysztof, I would also like
the permitted use thereof covered in the prose.

Is there a particular important reason for this? If not, I suggest this restriction be lifted as it creates a likely pitfall for authors. (I feel the prose needn't be amended though.)
