    I just conducted one other experiment relevant to this thread. In the XSL-FO
    that I am inputting directly to XEP, I added linefeed-treatment="preserve"
    to the block containing the U+2028 characters. I tried it with the U+2028 as
    both raw characters and character references, and in each case, a line break
    was produced in the PDF at the expected location. So I conclude from this
    that the parser is *not* normalizing U+2028 to a linefeed, but that it is
    passing through to XEP properly, but that XEP is treating it as equivalent
    to a linefeed character for purposes of the linefeed-treatment property. So
    this is probably an XEP bug (unless I have overlooked some other property
    that is relevant here).

    Sorry for the afterthought -- I didn't think to do this until I had slept on
    it a bit.
