"or more" \n is valid?  That would make the rust bug of \r\r\n\n pass
when I assume it shouldn't.

Maybe none that matter.  From

Commodore 8-bit machines (C64, C128), Acorn BBC, ZX Spectrum, TRS-80,
Apple II series, Oberon, the classic Mac OS, MIT Lisp Machine and OS-9

The article also goes on to mention that OpenVMS and RSX-11 can be
configured to use CR.
