One other point probably worth making:  while having whitespace before
the XML declaration technically makes the document "not well-formed",
it's not uncommon to see such documents in the wild (particularly when
the XML is generated by a script).  That said, I don't know how
strictly you want to treat this - the XML spec says that any document
that doesn't pass the well-formedness test in *any* way should be
rejected and not even attempt to parsed.
