Well, that's what the current text ("any CHAR except CTLs") says.  If
we want to "fix" that, then now's the time, while we're
precisificatifying the ABNF.

So, which should it be?:

1:  av-octet = %x20-3A / %x3C-7E    (allows space, but not tab)

2:  av-octet = %x21-3A / %x3C-7E    (allows neither space nor tab)

3:  av-octet = %x09 / %x20-3A / %x3C-7E    (allows both space and tab)
