That was my original position: map NEL away, but don't change the
definition of the S (whitespace) production.  Richard Tobin convinced
me that that position was inconsistent: embarrassingly, I can't
remember quite why.

It is a matter of justice, not of "help", the same way that it is a
matter of justice to allow XML documents written in Dhivehi or
Amharic, given that we already allow Greek and Hebrew.
