<j:string> element, since the text node child of j:string contains the value of
the string, which may be whitespace. It should say "whitespace text nodes are
ignored, except those whose parent element is an element named 'string'"

Also, for the content of other simple-valued elements (number, boolean) I think
it makes sense to strip leading and trailing whitespace, so that an untyped
input is accepted if the result of validating it against the schema would be
