White space after last element

I just tested SAXON with the new version of IBM's xml4j
parser: it crashes because SAXON doesn't expect white space
to be reported after the end of the outermost element. I'll
fix SAXON so it doesn't crash, but it raises a wider point,
because we now have several SAX-conformant parsers reporting
white space differently, and I'm not sure whether the spec
says clearly which of them is right (perhaps they all are).

Any comments from the experts?
