Since it leads to bad spacing particularly between slanted and
non-slanted text, I don't see a particularly important reason to
actually encourage the stuff.

Of course, it is hard to avoid catering with those since they are
indispensible in *plain* TeX.  But plain TeX writers are not such
weenies as to require angry fruit salad coloring in the first place.
