Regarding the draft at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/PER-xmlschema-2-20040318/:

Section 3.3.1 says:

    ...  The ˇvalue spaceˇ of normalizedString is the set of strings
    that do not contain the carriage return (#xD), line feed (#xA) nor
    tab (#x9) characters.  ...

Given the proposal (or plan?) to add the EBCDIC new-line character
to the set of whitespace characters in XML, might XML Schema want to
specify the excluded non-space whitespace characters other than by
explicitly listing the current ones?  (Perhaps saying something like
"whitespace characters other than the space character" would work.)
