In the HTML version of the doc those spaces are necessary to separate those words.
Currently, the external fun syntax "fun M:F/A" only supports literals. That is, "fun lists:reverse/1" is allowed but not "fun M:F/A". In many real-life situations, some or all of M, F, A are not known until run-time, and one is forced to either use the undocumented erlang:make_fun/3 BIF or to use a "tuple fun" (which is deprecated). EEP-23 suggests that the parser (erl_parse) should immediately transform "fun M:F/A" to "erlang:make_fun(M, F, A)". We have not followed that approach in this implementation, because we want the abstract code to mirror the source code as closely as possible, and we also consider erlang:make_fun/3 to be an implementation detail that we might want to remove in the future. Instead, we will change the abstract format for "fun M:F/A" (in a way that is not backwards compatible), and while we are at it, we will move the translation from "fun M:F/A" to "erlang:make_fun(M, F, A)" from sys_pre_expand down to the v3_core pass. We will also update the debugger and xref to use the new format. We did consider making the abstract format backward compatible if no variables were used in the fun, but decided against it. Keeping it backward compatible would mean that there would be different abstract formats for the no-variable and variable case, and tools would have to handle both formats, probably forever.

The two noncharacter code points 16#FFFE and 16#FFFF were not allowed to be encoded or decoded using the unicode module or bit syntax. That causes an inconsistency, since the noncharacters 16#FDD0 to 16#FDEF could be encoded/decoded. There is two ways to fix that inconsistency. We have chosen to allow 16#FFFE and 16#FFFF to be encoded and decoded, because the noncharacters could be useful internally within an application and it will make encoding and decoding slightly faster.

Now, in child specification, the shutdown value can also be set to infinity for worker children. This restriction was removed because this is not always possible to predict the shutdown time for a worker. This is highly application-dependent.
