There is a special clause on this. The first paragraph of 
[5.9.11. Lexical Structure] reads:

XSL> When processing an expression, white space 
XSL> (ExprWhitespace) may be allowed before or 
XSL> after any expression token even though it is not 
XSL> explicitly defined as such in the grammar. 

The same approach is also used in XPath spec; 
I don't see any problem here.
