That's exactly what I'm doing. But it's current practice in applications to
treat LFs as line break when displaying/entering the data.

You're misreading what was written there:

The messages above clearly mean that it's still up to the admin whether he
adds LFs to the ACL string or not. Whether the user adds LFs or not is not
mandated by any of the mentioned applications at all.

In opposite to that: Your proposal is to change what the admin enters by
stripping all LFs. Normalization might make sense but users have to agree on
the presentation form. The presentation form you propose might fit your needs
but does not necessarily please someone else.

All things done in a UI are compromises and as usual your mileage may vary.

Ciao, Michael.
