Based on today's discussion, wouldn't there be a single space (the 
collapsed one from the span)? And so I take it you are pointing out an 
inconsistency? Or maybe I'm just lost ...

I didn't say anything during the call nor on the list about this, but 
that doesn't mean I agree with whatever consensus seemed to emerge. I 
just don't get the practical implications of this issue, and so 
abstained. I got the impression I may not have been alone?

Michael asked whether we agree about the need for pretty printing or 
some such, and I honestly don't, simply because I don't understand what 
he meant by this.

So can someone recount why this (collapse vs. remove) is important?
