That would be so wrong, because it’s not obvious to anyone how long your string will be.

I could tell you, that the string from above could have 10k characters, even if you wouldn’t believe me, as it was proposed (and included in yesterday’s toolchain) my claim can be true.

The trailing spaces needs to be stripped by the algorithm unless there is an explicit precision annotation with a backslash!

foo   \
That example definitely won’t have 10k characters.

Trailing whitespace 

You also propose to remove trailing white space in each line unless the whitespace is followed by a backslash.   For example:
let str_2 = """↵   
The two trailing whitespaces after foo would get removed according to what you are proposing. I don't like this rule. I think we are better off with leaving it alone and to the tools as Brent suggested.
