Excellent. We will certainly define it.

Perhaps. Though I think one of the values of AsciiDoc is that it's not cryptic. So limiting spacing characters to space, tab, and line feed has merit. When we start to allow other spacing characters, then I think it introduces inconsistently from one document to the next. I think a case has to be made for each individual character we permit. That way, we know why we permitted it.
