Re: PLEASE READ -- Open issues list for RFC-XXXX

The need for space is from those of us who want to be able to generate
RFC934-compatible encodings.  Some RFC934-recognition software looks for
things like

    <a whole bunch of dashes> <a space> <some phrase including spaces>CRLF

The phrase appears to be from [A-Za-z ], so allowing non-alpha
characters doesn't effect the want-to-sort-of-work-with-RFC934 crowd.
But, allowing a space in there does matter!
