If you find specific cases where that is the case, let us know :)

Specifically, if I alter the config of a list-style I type a space in the 
postfix often, I can imagine a user wanting to type an em-space there.  But 
my guess is that most users will just be too lazy and type two spaces instead 
which tends to get just about the same effect.
