Multiple Spaces in status lines, request lines

Description

Some implementations ignore multiple spaces in status lines and request lines, e.g.,

GET / HTTP/1.1 200 OK HTTP/1.1

Currently, the ABNF only allows one space between the components.

SHOULD extra space here be BWS or OWS?

There are no extra spaces allowed. That is the interoperable behavior. If some implementations choose to receive more than one space, that's their choice -- it is not interoperable to send more than one space. The ABNF defines what is valid to send.
