That is probably a correct argument- but at the same time it is not right thing
Yes- in Window Explorer the behavior is [if I remember correctly] exactly the same. But many things done by Microsoft are just plain wrong- just look at those OS various tweak programs and all those registry hacks available all over the Internet. I myself have a number of them, so that my Windows 7 would be a more user friendly and work efficient. I can give some examples if you like

I am talking here about ordinary spaces done with the Space bar of a keyboard, not some special / unusual versions of spaces. And while technically it is not a bug and can be viewed as normal- can as normal be viewed a mandatory change of name without even informing the user of occurrence of such profound thing?
And now please take a look at this not so old discussion: https://community.mp3tag.de/t/f-automat ... ame/18382/
In that Mp3tag, which is not a filehandler software, you can now have spaces not only in the beginning but also at the end of a file [and tamper with such files / names freely]
Also, the very old ACDSee 3.1 [from the year 2000], which is partially a filehandler, you can add spaces at the beginning of the filename; and move / copy them around within that ACDSee with retained excess of spaces. And at least since that 2000 I personally have never run into problems coming out from spaces being at the beginning of the name of the file. The only problem I had was that Windows Explorer was removing me those spaces- if I forgot to use ACDSee that is
Also the TeraCopy has no problem with retaining white spaces
And why people use FreeCommander and such- to go past limitations of Windows Explorer? Is not not a software like FreeCommander suppose to be better than the default Microsoft file handling stuff? If the user wants to have extra spaces for whatever reasons- then apparently the user needs them and probably knows what is doing and what the drawbags can be
If you still view this as too risky [for some of the users], then please consider this making as merely an available option, that has to be activated by the [more advanced] users in settings
