It seems the reason this worked for me is that I had edited the
font description files to include the space as well.  Are there
any situations where this could produce undesirable results?

Yes, but widthshow is too convenient not to use it for
word-spacing.  I guess the problem could be fixed by including
the space twice in the encoding vector, once as a "glue" space
and once as a "character" space, and then having widthshow
stretch only the "glue" space, treating the "character"
space as any other printable character.
