Thanks for that.

Exploring further... If you made IDREFS an element's contents (not 
recommended, but not disallowed), and you overrode the whitespace facet to 
be preserve, thus allowing you to have multiple intervening whitespace after 
validation, would/should the result still be interpreted as a valid IDREFS 
(i.e. a list of IDREF values)?

Is so, IDREFS is not always defined as having only a single intervening 
space char; correct?
