This would seem to be the case.  In libraries/libldap/url.c we see:

ldap_url_parselist (LDAPURLDesc **ludlist, const char *url )
    return ldap_url_parselist_int( ludlist, url, ", ", ldap_url_parse );

So it looks like spaces (not tabs) and commas can separate them.  If you 
want tabs as well (and there might be a reason why they're disallowed) 
you'll need to file an ITS.
