   Is there any reason why this whitespace can't be protected with a
   trailing comment character?  I strongly suggest to put that into the
   `Lisp Style Manual', if such a thing exists.

Are we absolutely sure that trailing whitespace within a string is
never meaningful?  `;' has no special meaning within a string and 
M-x delete-trailing-whitespace, as well as C-j, delete trailing
whitespace within strings, just like any other place.
