Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: This is another case where HTML4 was not aligned with popular
implementations. E.g. not preserving whitespace for <input type=hidden> would
break sites. And browsers actually got a lot of requests to preserver
whitespace for the title attribute as well (in the UI, they already did at
tree-level).
