In article <p06002008bbbc32627620@[]> you write:

If you can show a single real document that this applies to, I'll take
it more seriously.

>However, I don't see the benefit of doing it in 1.1 since parsers

The problem is that you don't know which characters are line breaks
until you've read the version number.

>an additional distinction between 1.0 and 1.1 will just make parsers

The change was based on implementor feedback, in particular a comment
from me, though I only suggested outlawing the new line end characters.

>In either case, I assume you're planning to go back to last call

The CR period is for implementation feedback.  Since it affects no
existing (i.e. 1.0) documents, I can't see any need to go back to
last call.
