Agreed. I arbitrarily chose to default to the null separator for two
1. because RDF does it, and it's the only Recommendation that has
anything to say about the specifics of concatenation; and
2. to stay out of any religious wars against which character should be
used as the separator.
The RDF concatenation does lead to nasty problems, as John suggests.
I could live with [space], if everyone promises not to flame me (it's
one character that's virtually guaranteed not to be allowed in XML
names in any future version of the spec).
All the best,
