That should be, "Whitespace is not valid in a URI, even if that URI
contains embedded base64-encoded data."

Whitespace _is_ perfectly valid in base64-encoded data in general, of

Interestingly, while RFC 2396 prohibits whitespace in a URI, the example
given in RFC 2397 showing baseb4-encoded data embedded in a URI _does_
include whitespace.
