Re: [web-annotation] Reference to text encoding in spec perhaps not appropriate

Taking into account that we need a week to have a review of the 
documents before voting on publishing, if we don't start this this 
Monday, we slip with our schedule again. We have one open issue right 
now; can we try to get specific proposals on how to close the issue, 
please? We have been dragging this last issue for more than two weeks

then search for it in text/plain where the whitespace is meaningful 
(and hence has been normalized already because users will see it), 
then it won't match. Similarly for entities, tags and other markup.
