Both 1.1 and 1.2 Mobile draft state:

  When xml:space="default", the SVG user agent will do the following
using a copy of the original character data content. First, it will
remove all newline characters.

Can someone please explain the rationale of the requirement to remove
all newlines, as opposed to (much more natural) converting them to
spaces?  I think this is very counterintuitive.
