This is not news. There have for a long time been problems with
significant trailing space, which is why CRLF 1*WSP CRLF in a header
is part of the obs- syntax of 2822, and why quoted-printable encodes
WSP at the end of a line.

This is simply incorrect. It's trivial to define a whitespace
construction that only allows CRLF at the beginning of a sequence:
NTWSP = [CRLF] 1*WSP ; non-trailing white space
