My own inclination would be to require quotes for any names that include
whitespace.  I guess I wouldn't be adamant, though, because this list is
disjunctive rather than conjunctive, making it at least a little like
the list of selectors, as opposed to a set of values.  So, I wouldn't
object to comma separation, but I would like the standard to use only
quoted strings in examples.  I do think allowing unquoted multi-word
names is confusing.

b/t/w - I believe the current grammar would not support the suggestion - I
think it requires quoting.
