XML 1.1 classifies these as line ending characters (which means they are
normalized to newlines by the XML parser). This means that they will not
normally be seen by a schema validator, unless they were escaped as numeric
character references. If they are escaped then they can appear in an NMTOKEN
(they are not classed as whitespace characters under either XML 1.0 or XML
1.1).

It seems to me that this is all fairly clear from a reading of the two specs
and I can't see that any further clarification is required, unless you are
looking for an affirmation that the specification actually means what it says.

(Personal response)
