Careful.  2.11 applies to line ends:  CR, CRLF, and LF are all
mapped to a single LF.  But if a CRLF constructed using character
reference (as in your text above) won't be covered by 2.11 !!

For example, see section 2.3.3 re attribute value normalization, which
makes clear that you can emit a literal CRLF; and similarly 4.5 re
construction of internal entity replacement texts.
