That's a bug.  Corrected as erratum based on R-175. 

All the best, Ashok

Subject: The lexical space of normalizedString

The lexical-to-value mapping of string is the identity function.
normalizedString is derived from string. Therefore the lexical-to-value
mapping of normalizedString is also the identity function.

However, in the defintion, the value space does not contain strings with
line feed character #xA, whereas the lexical space does.

This suggest the question, "For the one character string '#xA' in the
lexical space of normalizedString, what is the corresponding value?"

Given the reading of whiteSpace as a constraining facet (see previous
message), and noting that for normalizedString, that the whiteSpace
has value replace, then this seems like an error. We read the lexical
of normalizedString to exclude #xA. This is similar to erratum 2-17.
