I did some research into this in December and made sure that potlatch
inserted spaces. It was by far the most common variant when I looked
into it using tagwatch, and it matched the detailed discussion on the
wiki. I didn't feel there was anything to be gained by going against
convention or trying to change the convention.
Now of course, the interface is smart enough to recognise non-space
variants and display the correct values, so no mappers should really
care. I would therefore suggest that anyone who is exposing themselves
to whether or not to enter a space when mapping should upgrade to a
better editor! :-)
