and what happens if you
  echo 'a b:; echo $@' | make -f - a
?  If that doesn't echo a, then you've broken all rules with more than
one target ...

I expected your escaping to require
  echo 'a\\ b:; echo $@' | make -f - 'a b'
  echo '"a b":; echo $@' | make -f - 'a b'
or similar, so that the target's space is escaped.
