I just noticed a minor inconsistency in the XML spec: There are three
kinds of marked section declarations in XML (CDATA, INCLUDE and
IGNORE). With INCLUDE and IGNORE, whitespace is allowed between the
keywords and the delimiters on either side. That is, both

 <![     INCLUDE [...]]>


 <![IGNORE    [...]]>

are acceptable. But such whitespace is _not_ allowed in a CDATA

Is there an explicit reason for this, or is it just the way things
happened to turn out? SGML allows whitespace in all three cases.
