Comment (by boonebgorges):

 > usernames in the context of an online comminity are more than just a
 means to authenticate

 I'm speaking from a technical point of view here. In a normal BP
 installation, the *only thing* we use `user_login` for is authentication.
 We use `user_nicename` for everything else - including URLs and
 @-mentions. `user_nicename` cannot contain spaces. So, allowing spaces in
 `user_login` will only affect people who are using
