Is it clear what string the pattern facet of a union type applies to? 

It seems to me it should be the lexical space value of the winning type in the 
union, i.e. when processing an item with a union type, we go directly to the 
member type definitions, and for each one in turn: 

1. normalize per the whiteSpace facet _of that member type defn_; 
2. check the pattern facet of the union type itself; 
3. check the pattern facet of the member type defn; 
4. convert to value and check other facets from the member type defn. 

If any of (2), (3) or (4) fail, go on to the next member type defn. 

I don't think the REC as it currently stands makes clear that this is what 
happens, or that it doesn't.
