I guess nobody really bothered because Make itself uses blanks
as filename separators.  '\ ' seems to be a GNU extension, does
anybody knows of another implementation where it works?  (Do not
misread this as an objection, I'm just curious to know where it
can work.)

The '\ 's are not seen by make, they are interpreted by the shell
that is invoked in the make rule executions, right? And for data,
there is rarely the occasion it occurs in a make rule header...
