it's true the client lexer becomes marginally more complex with
unquoted multiline values.  but i'm not sure i see yet how the
complexity difference is at all signficant.

you should never be sending mcp 2.1 messages at a system which
advertises itself as mcp 1.0.  if you are, your version negotiation is
broken.  this is a nonissue.
