The implemented heuristics sometimes fails and cause authors to spend lots of time to find workarounds, and these workarounds (such as using nbsp) leak into the published canonical XML.

The requirement was removed in rfc7322bis four years ago, and the implementation should align with that.

Per CMT discussion on 26Apr, we will add a switch to xml2rfc to allow choosing which behavior (normalizing to two or one space). The default output will be one space, and that will be reflected in the style guide.

The heuristics that are getting initials and other cases wrong will need to be improved.
