Indeed.

Yes, css3-values has since changed. The example has been updated (and
"string" has been removed as this is the default value).

Yes, this seems reasonable.

I'm unsure if this should be defined on the <string> value or on the
"bookmark-label" property. Probably the latter. For bookmarks, it
seems that one would always want white spaces to be pruned, while
other uses of <string> may want to preserve them.
