I think that's the right approach, but it *isn't* accepted by everyone
as obvious, as is shown by the fact that many specs state it explicitly.

Are you saying the XML spec has this problem?  If so, which rule is
unclear?  The line end rule is clear that the result is as if line
ends were converted on input.  Or are you talking about XSLT?
