I'd think so too. Seemed logical to me. Just funny, because it kept  
me busy for quite some time yesterday. Should've looked at the log  
output much sooner... :)
In the end, whether the characters are white-space or not, the first  
node in the block is a PCDATA node, so we should reject it. If the  
white-space is collapsed, then the marker becomes the first node/ 
initial child, and the constraint is satisfied.
