What would the rationale be for allowing leading and trailing spaces?

AFAICT, in XML Schema part 2 numbers, for example, do not allow leading and
trailing space in their lexical value.

I for one much prefer values properly trimmed in the data, and we now have
the `whitespace` MIP which takes care of the trimming anyway. [1]
