A possible misunderstanding here: a NMTOKEN itself can't contain
whitespace, but the attribute value specification, the quoted thing
after the equals sign, can: so
<my-element my-name-token=" WHITESPACE">
*is* a valid NMTOKEN attribute specification. The NMTOKEN in this
example is only "WHITESPACE", though; the leading (and trailing)
whitespace is trimmed.
