Speaking as document shepherd.

The IETF Last Call for  draft-ietf-sidr-rfc6490-bis-04.txt  ended on 23 July 2015.

One issue of substance arose - permitting or forbidding line breaks in the base64 encoding of the trust anchor, and, if permitted, at what max line length.

I do not see wg consensus about exact resolution.

Various options and various max line lengths have been suggested.  Existing implementations use various line lengths.

More commenters, please.

Preferences for Richard’s option #2 (allow but do not mandate line breaks) or for Richard’s option #3 (mandate line breaks)?  Note that option #3 means we have to settle on a max line length.
