What is the SVG Working Group's official stand on handling
leading/trailing whitespace in attribute values? For example:

 <svg:rect width=" 2em   " stroke-dasharray=" 1, 2, 3, 4 "/>

A strict reading of SVG 1.1 would say that leading and trailing
whitespace is generally not allowed, yet at least some implementations
(e.g., Adobe) ignore it, and CSS2 allows it in most places.
