We saw no need to forbid spaces when this was designed. In other places
where we have slashes, we allow spaces too. Since no ambiguity arises
 from the way <ratio> is used, and since we have multiple inter-operable
implementations, it does not make much sense to change it now.

Does this answer your question?
