`<number-optional-number>` is a list with minimum one, and maximum two
Maybe I'm missing something, but those proposed options would allow 
more than two wouldn't they?

Expressing comma-wsp is the problematic part, since there's no 
equivalent that allows either comma or whitespace.

The clearest equivalent currently seems to be
`<number>{1,2} | <number>#{1,2}`

I think this might be what @fantasai is suggesting, but maybe we could
 make a new token for a comma-wsp list? E.g. '&'
This would result in:

This would improve the `<T>+#` grammars we have in SVG, which while 
correct, aren't as clear semantically as they could be.
