I don't understand how you conclude that these are not valid use
cases.  E.g., I could have a mode turned on that automatically
capitalizes words at the beginning of each sentence, in which case
typing "and "and" will produce "And and".  And that is just an example
based on 5 sec of thought.

And I don't understand how, just because you can think of an example, that makes the current behaviour a good default! I think we'll have to disagree. I would be happy with a preference, of course.
