Spaces are usually there to provide appropriate presentation - ensure that
the last word of a text alternative isn't run together with the first word
following - this makes it easier to read, or understand when spoken by a
screen reader.

Thanks to Simon for having some history available for the repeats of
discussion.

cheers
