The white-space-treatment, linefeed-treatment, and 
white-space-collapse properties are not applicable
to fo:bookmark-title.

What should always happen with fo:bookmark-title
with respect to those three properties is that the
implementation should behave as though these properties
had their initial values:

    linefeed-treatment="treat-as-space"
    white-space-collapse="true"
    white-space-treatment="ignore-if-surrounding-linefeed"

This results in ignoring generally unwanted whitespace
and is appropriate for bookmarks.

We plan to clarify this in the 1.1 specification.
